Learning and Leading for Growth: Preparing Leaders to Support Adult Development in Our Schools
Drago-Severson, Eleanor; Blum-Destefano, Jessica; Asghar, Anila
Journal of School Leadership, v23 n6 p932-968 Nov 2013
Currently, scholars and practitioners seek to improve leadership programs so that educational leaders can more effectively support adult development--especially since it is connected to improved student achievement. Interview findings presented here stem from a larger mixed methods study. This research investigated how a university course on leadership for adult development influenced participating leaders' thinking and on-the-ground practices years after course completion. Findings describe students' reported course learnings, ways that they translated learnings to practice, and obstacles that they still encounter. This investigation offers insight into how leadership coursework can help leaders support adult development in schools and build systemic and school structures that would better enable them to build capacity.
