Supervisory Leadership: Staff Selection Appraisal, and Renewal
3 credits

This course explores intellectual, moral, and practical dimensions of supervisory leadership, and links theory and practice related to staff selection, performance appraisal, and teacher renewal. The course examines how supervisory policies and practices define the working and learning environment in the school, how they reflect the values and culture of the school, how they relate to the broader community, and how they relate to school restructuring and change. The impact of supervisory leadership on student learning is a major focus. The course will include an introduction to the Framework for Teaching and a careful review of DPAS II. Students will have the opportunity to apply supervisory leadership principles and techniques in both simulated and authentic settings.
