Vorige week was er nog het Education at a Glance-rapport, gisteren werd er alweer een ander nieuw rapport gepresenteerd. Kleiner van opzet, gebaseerd op TALIS 2013, maar niet onbelangrijk qua thema: leiderschap op school.
Je vindt hieronder een samenvattende presentatie met zeer veel tabellen, maar de essentie is in feite de volgende:
- Instructional leadership is the set of practices that principals use in relation to the improvement of teaching and learning. It is a strong predictor of how teachers collaborate and engage in a reflective dialogue about their practice. In most countries and economies, the majority of principals act as instructional leaders, though one-third rarely engage in any of this type of action.
- Distributed leadership is the ability of schools to incorporate different stakeholders in their decision- making processes. is type of leadership appears to advance the creation of a shared sense of purpose within schools. Nearly all schools involve their sta in decision-making processes, but they di er concerning the opportunities that are offered to students and their parents/guardians to be involved in school decisions.
• Principals who acquired instructional leadership competencies through training, or in a separate course, are more engaged in instructional leadership actions in their school than principals who have not participated in such training.
