EDUC 723 - Transformational Theories and Applications


Semester Hours: Three
This course explores different strategies for bringing about change leading to institutional improvement and reform in teaching and learning. Curriculum and best instructional practices are examined with a focus on research-based teaching and learning programs and systems that are proven to be effective and sustainable which address the needs of diverse learners. Candidates will consider the many critical factors that shape and influence efforts to bring about reform in educational institutions, including: vision, culture, climate, group dynamics, decision-making and communication processes, change theory, and influences of internal and external social systems. Special attention is given to the leader’s role in creating a climate and building an organizational capacity to change. Case study analysis and field research will serve as essential components in this course.
Note: This course is offered through synchronous distance learning and cannot be taken as a directed study.
