Organizational change has emerged as a critical topic in education administration, and the ability to lead change at various levels is now a key competence for teachers and administrators alike. This course will help students develop an understanding of the behavioral dimensions of teaching and leading in school environments. The course will examine schools as social systems and use organization and social science theories and research to explain school functioning at the individual and institutional levels of analysis. The course will focus on change in traditional and non-traditional educational settings and on change in a globalizing societal context.
