About the series:
As administrators, learning is continuously evolving and we must be learning leaderswithin our organization. But what does leadership look like in schools today? If we are leading schoolsthe same way that we were 20, 15, or even 10 years ago, will administrators still be relevant.Using the Alberta Education framework for Principals, we are looking at developing leadership inschools that builds upon the fundamentals of good administration but in a continuously changingenvironment. Although we will be using the Alberta Education framework, these qualities arebeneficial to leaders no matter what area of the world they are in. Because of this, we have askedschool administrators from all over North America to share their insights on each strand and how
they effectively meet this in the context of today’s learner.
With the “Leadership 2.0” open course, we will be pulling upon different experts to talk about what
leadership looks like based on the Alberta Education Principal Quality Standard. The followingseven dimensions will be focused on:
