Data-Driven Decision Making in Higher Education: One University's Process of Revamping the Superintendent Licensure Program
Hollingworth, Liz; Sullivan, Anne M.; Condon, Chris; Bhatt, Monica; Brandt, W. Christopher
Journal of Research on Leadership Education, v7 n1 p78-97 Apr 2012
Universities interested in remodeling licensure programs to prepare 21st-century superintendents are faced with a plethora of data to guide curriculum design. This article summarizes survey and focus group findings from current and prospective superintendents and outlines how these data informed the restructuring of the superintendent licensure program at a midwestern university. The curriculum and the delivery model were affected by the data. The authors reflect on the tensions between what the faculty were willing to change about the curriculum, the focus group suggestions, and the best practices described in the leadership preparation literature. (Contains 3 tables, 3 figures, and 3 notes.)
