Learning for Leadership: Building a School of Professional Practice

Part of the Educational Leadership Dialogues series, Learning for Leadership explores how school principals can initiate and maintain programs and practices to develop the leadership potential of teachers in their school. It explains the theory behind the concept of educational leadership and then it tells the story of a school much admired for its leadership development. Together, the research and the case study present a strong argument for the introduction of similar programs in schools throughout Australia.

The Educational Leadership Dialogues series creates a bridge between educational research and practice, and provides resources that support educational leadership. The series teams up researchers and experienced school principals to write short, evidence-based, practical guides on topics of significance, while engaging in a rich dialogue about practice and research.
