The focus of this module is to explore approaches to leadership and management, and the skills and qualities required to lead and manage a range of individual and professional groups within an educational setting. Current research, statutory requirements, legislation and policy will be drawn from in relation to leadership and management. Students will critically reflect on and evaluate the impact of different approaches to leadership and management, and models of leadership. Students will also be introduced to Appreciative Inquiry as a potential organizational development method to support leadership and management practice.
This module examines the key characteristics of change management in educational settings. It considers those factors that affect change at the micro, mezzo and macro level of organisational endeavour, including personal, inter-personal organisational and strategic concerns. The module is underpinned by an analysis of common concepts in the evaluation of change management, including: complexity, capacity building, professional capital, professional learning communities, renewal, sustainability, leadership, and enquiry.
