The course is presented across three modules, each with a related assessment task. Module one focuses on the relationship between leadership and student learning, drawing particularly from the school effectiveness and school improvement literature. Module two focuses on the student auditing current instructional practice in their setting using an identified model of pedagogy (students are free to choose their own model). The final module draws the two previous together and asks the student to make a plan for pedagogical improvement demonstrating their understanding of school effectiveness and school improvement and the current level of practice.
