EDUC665 - Emerging Issues and Trends in Education Leadership


This course examines a framework to address the emerging issues and trends in administration and supervision that have the potential to significantly influence the future direction of education. It describes how the educational leader can address emerging issues and trends, build the necessary leadership competence to respond to these issues and trends, and develop into a more accountable leader who can deal effectively with the need for school reform. Time will be spent studying the effects of media on student learning, taking into account that the K-12 and adult students of the 21st Century are “digital learners” whose learning styles are likely to be quite different from those of K-12 teachers and adult instructors. Research, study, discussion, and writing assignments will enable candidates in this course to systematically analyze various issues and trends such as accountability, privatization, national standards, voucher plans, organizational change, the diverse educational community, community resources and partnerships, marketing strategies and process, and other topics. (Prerequisite: EDUC503)
