Experiencing Educational Leadership Preparation Program Redesign in Alabama: One University's Perspective
Kochan, Frances; Reames, Ellen H.
Journal of Research on Leadership Education, v8 n2 p152-167 Aug 2013
Calls for changing educational leadership preparation have led many state policy makers to initiate program redesign efforts; the governor of Alabama constituted a working group to examine the situation and develop recommendations. This article details the school leadership preparation program redesign process in Alabama from the perspective of faculty at one university. The article presents an overview of the design process, basic program tenets, and manner in which one set of university faculty engaged in this endeavor. It also presents facilitating and hindering factors, compares redesigned program with previous program, and aligns the redesigned program with best practices. (Contains 1 table.)
