Organization and Leadership in Educational Institutions
This core course focuses on educational institutions as complex organizations. It pays attention to the operation of institutions with few resources, as well as those with more plentiful resources. Drawing on readings and examples from many sources, participants look both inside and outside educational institutions, especially those that affect resources; the industry as a whole and sectors within it and social definitions of educational institutions. Close attention is also given to the internal structures in these institutions, especially the interactions between bureaucratic structures and professionals; to organizational cultures; and to governance and decision-making. The course then turns to a close analysis of organizational change from several points of view.
