Global Perspective and the Implications for School Leadership
Zhang, Gaoming; Bohley, Katharine A.; Wheeler, Lynn
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v13 n2 p9-14 Fall 2017
Understanding and implementing a global perspective of business and education is a requisite skill for 21st Century educational leaders. Among principal preparation programs within the United States, there has been limited evidence of embedding the thread of global literacy or aligning curriculum with global-local skills. The purpose of this paper is to address this challenge by sharing an innovative approach that was designed and delivered in the MBA in Education Leadership program at the University of Indianapolis. This interdisciplinary initiative highlighted a thread of global perspective and aligned the thread with course content. In addition to a discussion of how instructors used various teaching methods (including lecture, discussion, hands-on activities) to promote understanding of global literacy and the assessment of student learning, this paper describes candidates' feedback regarding their positive learning experiences.
