COSL Summer Field-Led Course

Educational Leadership
FLC 3 Professional Perspectives: Educational Leadership (offered by the Council of School Leaders of The Manitoba Teachers’ Society)

Course Overview

This 38-hour Field-led course is designed to emphasize the professional knowledge base of experienced school leaders and the practical application of the knowledge and skills identified in the Five of Domains of Knowledge and Skill required by School Leaders in Manitoba for the Provincial Certificate in School Leadership. It explores the concept of educational leadership through three lenses: by role (leader, manager, change agent, learning community), as relationships (power, practices, people), and with commitments (conscious leadership, resilience). The course content and processes are intended to help learning leaders to reflect, apply, and lead intentionally while bridging theory with practice. A reflective practice perspective will provide a framework for course discussion and assignments.

When successfully completed, Field-led courses are accepted as external credit by Manitoba universities who offer post baccalaureate diplomas in educational administration. Please note: You must be registered in a post baccalaureate program in educational administration at University of Manitoba, Université de Saint Boniface or Brandon University and obtain a Letter of Permission from that university prior to enrolling in a Field-led course in order to have the Field-led Credit transferred to your program.
