Research and Leadership
Candidates are introduced to the leadership and instructional standards that are foundational to the Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and Preliminary Administrative Services Credential program. Basic research design methods are introduced. Through qualitative and quantitative research methods, candidates make data-driven decisions for the development, implementation, and evaluation of instructional programs. They apply their individual strengths to develop their visions for the improvement of teaching and learning, staff development, staff recruitment, and increasing community involvement. Elements of this course are built into the candidate's individual case study and leadership performance assessment.
