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 change 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. The final class session will meet at the Antioch campus in Keene, NH.
