Training Heads of Departments in Secondary Schools for an Effective Middle Management Role.
Mailer, Andre; Lyons, Geoff
CCBC Notebook, v10 n2 Feb 1981
Programs for developing the managerial capacities of department heads in secondary schools tend to be of two types. One type concentrates on the dynamics of interactions between participants during the program. In this type of program, consultants either call for active involvement of the participants in the analysis of their interactions, or provide that analysis for them. The second type focuses on the presentation to participants of the conceptual, empirical, and practical developments in the relevant management studies areas. Participants either actively engage in applied research directly related to their particular situations, or more passively receive less directly relevant information from consultants. A program incorporating the active aspects of both approaches is advocated in this document, and examples of such a program in action are provided. (Author/PGD)
