School Leadership Structure – Brainstorming Session 1
Inspired by my classmate Liz’s post where she started to get out her ideas for the first ETL504 Assessment, I think I will start some brainstorming of my own.
My understanding of our task is:
Using what you have learned in Module 2 and 3 – design the ideal 21st Century Learning change-oriented school leadership structure, including the TL/Library within that structure.
Pick 15 – 20 key concepts to portray that leadership structure visually in a concept map.
Write an argument that critically analyses your leadership structure – referring to your concept map and the literature.
Here are some potential concepts:
Participants and Stakeholders:
- Principal/Head of School
- Classroom Teachers
- Instructional Leaders
- Non-teaching staff: Admin/Exec/Other
- External Context – School System / Community / Other Government Agencies / Local Business / etc
Processes, Programs etc:
- Inquiry Learning
- Constructivist Pedagogy
- 21st Century Learning
- Authentic, contextualised learning
- Evidence basis / Data-driven / Action research
- Core business – teaching and learning
- Iterative process
Leadership styles/ elements / buzzwords:
- Shared Vision and Goals
- Relational Investment
Ah… good to know that I am going to need to cut like Edward Scissorhands before I even get properly started :).
