"In the 21st century education sector, the public school systems, private education companies and social entrepreneurs must all learn to lead in a volatile and rapidly changing environment. Our new online institute will provide educational innovators, entrepreneurs, and providers the knowledge and skills they need to address the challenges they face on a day to day basis and to have greater overall impact in their work." Henry Smith, SOE Assistant Professor, SOE’s Partnerships in Educational Transformation.
Featuring high-level courses, the Online Educational Leadership Institute offers educators the opportunity for advanced study in a carefully designed program addressing many of the leadership issues facing 21st century educational organizations. Courses include:
Entrepreneurial Education Leadership (offered Spring 2015)
This course examines the foundations, process, and practice of leadership, at the individual, group, and organizational levels. From historical to current leadership theories, leadership principles and theoretical concepts are addressed. This course also examines the differences between management and leadership, and explores some of the leadership competencies that promote leadership effectiveness. The focus of the course is on applying what we know about leadership to our leadership challenges in the educational environment.
Politics of Education (offered Spring 2015)
This course will explore the nuts and bolts of making and implementing education policy at the federal, state, and local levels. The course will examine the shifting balance of power and how education policy is practiced between and within the levels of government. This will be an important course for anyone interested in leadership positions.
Strategic Systems Change (offered Spring 2015)
Education leaders, public and private, need to understand the structures for teaching, learning, and managing the school and/or organizational environment. These structures include organizational visioning and action planning, budgeting and finance, and the leadership skills that incorporate instructional design, curriculum integration with standards, and logistics of technology implementation, professional development, and evaluation. This course is designed to introduce knowledge management concepts into an organizational or educational context and to provide an in depth focus on data-driven decision making in organizational and educational institutions. Participants will develop an understanding of how to create and support change through a systems approach.
