EDLE504 The Challenge of Leading Change (Pakistan)
Leaders in schools and educational systems are faced with the challenge of operating in a rapidly changing world. Economic globalisation, rapid technological advances and society’s increased expectations of education have replaced past certainties with new and uncertain frameworks. Dynamic change has become the order of the day. Within this context, educational leaders need to understand the forces for change operating at three different levels, namely; within the wider global environment, within the school and education systems, and within individuals. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on and analyse change in schools and educational systems using a number of different models and frameworks for planning, implementing and evaluating change processes and outcomes. These change perspectives will be used to assist educational leaders in managing change in ways that are meaningful, ethical, compassionate and productive.
