The University of Alaska Learning Cooperative: An Innovative Statewide Program in Educational Leadership.
Oldaker, Lawrence Lee
This paper describes a program designed to provide a unified sequence of graduate studies for principal certification in Alaska. The University of Alaska Learning Cooperative offers a single set of statewide program requirements, which reduces the costly duplication of instructional services and staff-development programs. The paper describes the program's development, rationale, governance, and elements. The core element is the year-long internship. Students also participate in weekly distance-delivered leadership seminars that focus on finance and facilities, personnel and labor relations, and community relations in diverse settings. Students continue to work with mentors for 1 year after completion of program requirements. The program features university-school district cooperation, the yearly appointment of practitioners to act as mentors, and a balance between campus- and field-based course work. (LMI)
