This module provides opportunities for participants to investigate current theories and research in school-improvement, and further explore those theories in relation to practices in their own school/work environment, along with the principles and practices of self-evaluation that inform them. A seminar format will be followed providing participants the opportunity to contribute to discussion and actively input ideas relating to ways and means of initiating and leading school improvement. Participants will meet regularly in a virtual, online learning environment which facilitates discussion and inter-action with others. Many of the principals and practices of school improvement are transferable to other organizations.
