Prerequisite: Admission to Ed.S. or Ed.D. Program.
This course focuses on specific instructional supervision research, models, and strategies that promote and advocate for collegial middle and secondary schools devoted to improving school wide learning through distributed leadership. Instructional supervision is placed within a developmental, contextual, constructive, humanist paradigm; and examined as a process of purposeful adult interactions and cognitions that promote autonomous, reflective, self-directed teacher practitioners committed to student learning and continual school improvement. This course will focus on the development and application of the knowledge base, interpersonal skills, technical skills, and tasks necessary for instructional supervision, mentoring and coaching. Emphasis will be also placed on school and system factors (sociocultural and political) that may affect teacher leadership in instructional supervision.
