Around the Fishing Net: Leadership Dynamics for Change in an American International School
Murakami-Ramalho, Elizabeth; Benham, Maenette
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v38 n5 p625-643 Sep 2010
This study explored the active involvement of school and community members investing in leadership dynamics for change, especially considering the increasingly globalized world and the importance of preparing globally minded citizens. To explore how educators and leaders work to foster dynamic learning experiences in a highly mobile global context, we studied leadership dynamics in kindergarten through secondary American international schools' environments. We inquired, "What kinds of leadership dynamics may be found in international schools that further inform the field about generating sustainable environments for teaching and learning?" One case scenario is presented to illustrate how leadership in times of complexity and change may enhance sustainable environments for teaching and learning at both local and international contexts. The exploration culminated with a deep analysis of leadership dynamics for change, respecting the individual's participatory power as well as the importance of collective wisdom in action.
