Description:

Competency Area: Educational & Social Policy
Restricted to and required of students in the Central NH 2010 Cluster Program.

Educators charged with leading school change efforts face a complex mix of social, political, and intra-personal issues. This course will focus primarily on the 'how' of school change and the skill requirements necessary for changed agents. Emphasis will be placed on exploring successful methods of shepherding the change process through increased understanding of group dynamics, systems thinking, and promoting adult growth.
