Effective Leadership - From Theory to Practice provides students with an opportunity to study and apply a problem-based learning approach to the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL). This scenario-based approach provides suggested responses that are grounded in theory and best practices. It also provides the prospective leader with an opportunity to move beyond mere reflective discussion by analyzing the suggested responses to the challenges posed in the scenarios. This practice is commonly used in the fields of law, business, and medicine. By using such an approach, the prospective school leaders have an opportunity to reflect, examine, compare, and make judgments about well-documented responses. Additionally, newly hired school administrators can use standards that inform leader behavior, relate those standards to specific theories, and then transform those theories into practice.
