Changing Schools of Education through Grassroots Faculty-Led Change
Perry, Jill Alexa
Innovative Higher Education, v39 n2 p155-168 Apr 2014
In this article I report on the application of the lens of Rogers' (1995) change agent roles and Kezar and Lester's (2011) adaptation of tempered radicals in order to understand the leadership roles assumed by three individual faculty members located at three distinct schools of education. These faculty leaders utilized the concepts and principles of the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) to lead redesigns of their Ed.D. programs. Qualitative data were gathered during a larger study on institutional change. Findings contribute to understanding grassroots leadership and how it works in collaboration with top-down authorities.
