Upon completion of this course, students will be able to: plan lessons that reflect an understanding of students developmental characteristics and needs; develop instructional goals and objectives that are clear, relevant, meaningful, and age-appropriate; apply different approaches to learning that students may exhibit and what motivates students to become active, engaged learners; identify the characteristics and skills necessary for exemplary educational leadership; clarify the role of the school leader by analyzing how leadership skills influence and drive the inner workings of the school community; analyze the components behind making sound educational decisions; summarize techniques for approaching and implementing change; and discern the roles of local, state and federal relationships and the corresponding influence upon school structure and function.
Educational Administration provides an introduction to school administration, including a basic knowledge of administrative doctrine and other concepts that inform and strengthen leadership behavior. Course participants will examine leadership skills and attributes and how those skills influence the variety of interrelationships and situations school leaders face. The challenges presented by the school setting and other environmental forces will also be discussed. Relationships with local, state and federal agencies will be investigated. Participants will reflect upon the practical application of these critical theories.
