EDL 7400 - Leading Professional Learning and Change

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to M. Ed. program or permission of instructor.
In this course, future educational leaders will learn how to use professional learning to develop their faculties and lead change in schools. Students will examine research findings on effective professional learning, demonstrate an understanding of the National Staff Development Council standards adopted by the state of Georgia, identify areas of strength and need related to the implementation of the professional development standards in their schools and develop strategies to provide and protect time for job-embedded professional learning, such as mentoring, coaching, feedback, study groups, peer observation and learning teams. The ultimate goal of this course is for students to develop a clear and compelling vision for professional learning that is standards-based, results-driven, and focused on the daily work of educators in order to improve learning of all students including those with special needs and those who come from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
