Reform in Administrator Preparation Programs: Individual Perspectives. UCEA Monograph Series.
Wendel, Frederick C., Ed.; Bryant, Miles T., Ed.
This publication contains five chapters that focus on individual perspectives of reform in administrator-preparation programs. In "One Person's Links Between Administration and the Academy," Ann Weaver Hart offers a self-study that views administrative leadership as an ongoing process of social validation and socialization. Diana G. Pounder, in "Reflections of a Practitioner in Academia," provides an alternative view to the myth of the rational and all-knowing administrator. "Reappraising Personal Experience in the Reform of Curriculum in Educational Administration," by Paul V. Bredeson, examines the use of personal administrative experiences as a basis for thinking about and effecting curricular reform in educational administration. In "Career Assessment as a Guide to Administrator Preparation and Evaluation," Virginia L. Wylie and Robert O. Michael describe Valdosta State College (Georgia) faculty's development and testing of a career-assessment instrument that examines student perceptions of selected personal and professional factors in securing and succeeding in administrative positions. "Professional Formation and a Tri-Dimensional Approach to the Preservice Preparation of School Administrators," by John C. Daresh, presents a conceptual model for improving administrator-education programs that is based on greater university/school collaboration and increased provision of clinical learning opportunities. References accompany each chapter. (LMI)
