Learner-Centered Leadership: A Mentoring Model for the Professional Development of School Administrators
Kiltz, Gary; Danzig, Arnold; Szecsy, Elsie
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v12 n2 p135-153 2004
The Learner-Centered Leadership program is a new initiative that provides professional development opportunities to school administrators through a mentoring model. The focus on learner-centered leadership reflects renewed attention to the primary role of teaching and learning in the development of school leadership expertise. With a focus on learning, the need to create collaborative structures where trust, respect and communication are promoted among the participants has been critical. In its first year, the project goal has been to develop the capacity for mentoring across districts. To create this capacity, the project has focused on building relationships among participants using a threefold process: formal workshops that introduce the districts and participants; informal gatherings that break down barriers and establish opportunities for networking; and a series of problem-solving initiatives called a team challenge that require participants work together, communicate and cooperate to solve the challenging activities.
