EDU871 - Advanced Educational Leadership

Leadership describes an individual's ability to influence. This course is a survey of selected research that addresses the development of leadership skills, the academic field of leadership studies, the roles of leadership in education, including transactional, transformational, and post-modern theory. Leadership is examined, not only from the perspective of personal development, but also in the contexts of organizational and systems theories. Moreover, since the literature relating to leadership is varied, with approaches ranging from popular, "self-help" to serious academic scholarship, this course provides the opportunity to compare and contrast this wide range of leadership analysis.
