Description:

Competency Area: Educational Research
Required of and restricted to Experienced Educator/School Leadership and Administration students who entered in Summer 2007. On-line course.

To fulfill the requirements for this course, candidates will conduct a comprehensive research project on the implementation of their change initiative. They will document the change work they have done and, using the research design they developed over the summer, they will track the progress and success of their project through multiple sources of data. As a final outcome, they will share their results with the school-community as part of the on-going dialogue for development within the school. Documentation of student work will include both the data collected and feedback from the school community about the success and implementation of the project and the candidate's role as a project leader.
