School Leadership Professional Development
School Leadership Games is a professional training tool built for aspiring and practicing school leaders. These games will offer complete simulated school leadership experiences, and will ultimately be configurable into a comprehensive game of school leadership in which players will have the opportunity to run schools and learn the necessary skills and qualities of successful school leaders through game play. The project is designed to develop a new understanding of how to access, document and communicate the knowledge that guides the practice of successful instructional leaders. The work is grounded in prior efforts to document the practice of leaders engaged in the difficult work of constructing professional communities, developing inclusive teaching practices, and designing and implementing teacher evaluation programs. This project will help you think about the relationship between leadership, school reform, accountability, and leadership preparation.
