This Master's programme is an 18-month course, which combines theoretical and practical approaches to enable current and aspiring leaders to develop both their understanding and skills.  The course aims to develop and improve the quality of leadership in schools and is suitable for those currently in a leadership post and those aspiring to leadership.  The course content is suitable for both Secondary and Primary/Prep teachers. Assessment is via the submission of four written assignments, contributions to an online seminar forum and will culminate in a research dissertation.

Course content

Throughout the programme, each student will be assigned a supervisor who will support them through the assignments and with the final dissertation. The course covers the following topics:

Module 1 The Leadership Landscape: Role, Responsibilities and Relationships.
This module sets the MEd in the broader context of the range of theory that currently exists relating to Educational Leadership and Management. We will consider how this is reflected in different forms of leadership within schools. We will look at it means to want to be a leader and how leadership is often portrayed in conflict with management.  

Module 2 Leadership in Action: Making Changes.
This module introduces the concept of change management and its place within educational leadership. This is linked to the challenges facing schools today and ways in which the educational landscape has changed over the last fifty years. This module looks at the different ways in which leaders can bring change about in their institutions and how this links to the different kinds of contexts that you can find in modern schools. An understanding of these processes includes practical applications to modern leadership challenges, for example with regard to finance.

Module 3 Developing Strategy.
The module begins with a focus on different styles of leadership and the effect that this would have on decision-making in schools. This is then linked to a unit on managing people, whether this is working with staff or with the parental community. The module looks at managing under performance and connects this back to work on change management. Strategic thinking is looked at and how this links to organisational structures and whether there are alternative ways of this being organised. The module links all of this to teaching and learning issues and how leadership is linked to pedagogy. The research project is introduced in more detail at this point.

Module 4 Researching Leadership and Management.
The focus of this module is the development of the research project in relation to each student’s educational context. This looks at research topics such as finding your critical voice, exploring research paradigms and methodologies, how data can be analysed and confidence in relation to ethics and validity. The project is set in the context of the educational leadership academic community and the implications for the immediate and wider settings. These issues are linked to educational research and the organisations that exist looking at these topics.

Module 5 Dissertation.
This is the culmination of the programme and the production of a 12,000-15,000 word dissertation. The students will work independently on this whilst also being supported by their supervisor and with the option of attending online webinars.

该硕士课程为期18个月,通过理论和实践相结合的方法,帮助有抱负的领导者发展他们的理念和技能。本课程旨在培养和提高学校的领导素质,适合于目前处于领导岗位或有志于从事教育领导工作的人。课程内容适合中小学教和幼儿园教师、中层管理人员和领导者。学员需通过指定的在线平台提交四份书面作业,并最终以一篇研究论文结业。

课程内容

纵观整个课程,每个学生都将被指派一位导师,在完成作业和完成期末论文时给予支持。。

本课程涵盖以下主题:

模块一  领导力格局: 角色、责任和关系
本模块课程将置身于一系列现有的领导力和管理学理论中。我们将思考学校中的领导力是通过哪些形式来体现的。我们将学习成为一个领导需要的能力及素养,以及领导力在冲突管理中所扮演的角色。

模块二 实践中的领导力: 做出改变
本模块介绍变革管理的概念及其在教育领导力中的位置。这与当今学校面临的挑战以及过去50年来教育格局的变化息息相关。本模块着眼于领导者可以通过不同方式为他们的机构带来积极改变,这些方式又是如何与现代化学校中的不同环境相联系的。我们将引领学员理解这些流程,包括领导力的实际应用,如在财务管理方面。

模块三 发展战略
该模块首先关注不同的领导风格,以及这将对学校决策产生的影响。这些将与人事管理的课程内容相联系,包括如何同员工以及与家长群体合作。该模块着眼于绩效不佳情况下的管理,并与变革管理的工作联系起来。我们还将研究战略思维,以及如何将这些思考与组织结构联系起来,是否存在其它组织结构的替代方案。最终,课程会将所有这些思考与教学问题和教学法联系起来。研究任务也将在这一环节进行更为详尽的引入。

模块四 研究式的领导力和管理
这个模块的重点是基于每个学员的教育背景来考虑研究任务如何完成。这将着眼于研究主题,如寻找你的批判性声音、探索研究范式和方法、如何分析数据以及处理道德和有效性相关问题时的信心。该项目的背景是探讨教育领导这个学术群体及其对于教育领域直接和广泛影响。这些问题与教育研究和关注这些问题的组织有关。

模块五 学术论文
