In Response to the Call for Change: The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Educational Leadership Program Model.
Lampe, Scherie E.; Cramer, Susan R.
This paper describes revisions made by faculty in the educational leadership program at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. The program focuses on empowerment, reflective practices, integration of theory and practice, leadership development, the identification of desired outcomes, and the inclusion of Total Quality Management principles. The program integrated the following core curriculum components: self-knowledge development, an expanded professional knowledge base, experiential learning activities combining theory and practice, and continuous improvement. The integration of the core curriculum components was guided by three models: the technical-scientific deductive design characterized by the works of both Tyler and Hunkins; the technical-scientific design characterized by the work of Taba; and the naturalistic design outlined by Glatthorn. The faculty developed a nine-step curriculum development/infusion model based on the most desirable aspects of each model: (1) assess alternatives, evaluate current approach, and diagnose needs; (2) develop program goals and philosophy; (3) conduct curriculum conceptualization and legitimization; (4) select content and concepts, stake out territory, and plan for evaluation; (5) develop course (instructor); (6) implement; (7) communicate expectations to students; (8) evaluate; and (9) maintain. Five figures are included. The appendix lists the program's critical core competencies. (LMI)
