Note:

Introduction

Expectations of leaders in educational and other settings can change significantly over the course of a career.  In addition to understanding individual issues of changing professional identity, self-preparation, and role transition, leaders are required to engage with heightened responsibilities when government and institutional reforms of structure, culture and practice entail high stakes accountability through outcome-focused performance targeting.   By the end of this unit, you will have developed advanced knowledge and skills in the connection between individual and systemic change in leadership practice through study of modules on:  approaches to leadership, theories and styles of leadership, the practice of leadership; and the social dimension of leadership in educational and related work contexts. Part of the aims this unit is to enable you to have a better understanding of yourself as a leader and how to lead others.
