The Construction of Simulations as an Instructional Activity for Graduate Students in an Education Leadership Program
Staub, Nancy A.; Bravender, Marlena
Leadership and Research in Education, v1 p67-78 2014
Leading, facilitating, and making decisions is central to school leadership positions. Decision-making simulations provide graduate students a vehicle for increasing their practice and fine-tuning leadership skills with guided support from college faculty. This action research study uses a case study method to reveal the perspectives of school practitioners when reviewing decision-making simulations constructed by graduate students in a principal preparation program. The findings from the study are used to shape the instructors' own growth in designing instructional activities that provide relevancy and meaning to graduate student coursework.
