With increasing pressure on school leaders to draw upon research and evidence in their decision-making, the need for critical engagement with research has never been greater. This course serves as an introduction to critically engaging with popular school leadership research and its implications for practice.
Upon completion of this course, students will be expected to:
1) Critically engage with the purpose, findings and underlying assumptions of school leadership research; and
2) Explicitly analyse a chosen piece of research for its impact on practice.
Indicative content will include:
- Contemporary popular research on school leadership, management and administration; and
- Theoretical and practical strategies for engaging with research.
This course will be counted as the equivalent of EDUC6016 for the purposes of transition.
