Field-Led Course 3

 

Professional Perspectives
FLC 3: Educational Leadership

Course Overview

This course explores the concept of educational leadership through four lenses: by role (leader, manager, change agent, learning community); with commitments (conscious leadership, five practices of exemplary leaders); in relationships (power and privilege); and by an ethic of care. 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.

This 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.
