This unit acknowledges the reality that workplaces are often centres of uncertainty and confusion such that no one theoretical insight seems sufficient for understanding such a complex context. Deeper understanding is only possible when threads of a number of different theoretical perspectives are woven together. Hence, the specific intention of this unit is to provide the opportunity for the application of learnings across a number of units in an integrated way which extends and enhances understandings. Students are challenged to synthesise different aspects of the theory and practice of educational leadership so as to heighten its applicability to their specific workplace. As an integrative unit, it would normally be taken in the later stages of a student’s candidature.
