About the series: As administrators, learning is continuously evolving and we must be learning leaders within our organization. But what does leadership look like in schools today? If we are leading schools the 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 in schools that builds upon the fundamentals of good administration but in a continuously changing environment. Although we will be using the Alberta Education framework, these qualities are beneficial to leaders no matter what area of the world they are in. Because of this, we have asked school 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 following seven dimensions will be focused on:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Fostering Effective Relationships Embodying Visionary Leadership Leading a Learning Community Providing Instructional Leadership Developing and Facilitating Leadership Managing School Operations and Resources Understanding and Responding to the Larger Societal Context

To ensure that participants are coming out with a product, a first session on “digital portfolios” will be offered to help school leaders be able to reflect openly on their learning both during and after the sessions. The suggested platform for this portfolio will be a wordpress blog. We encourage participants to attend all sessions to broaden their learning. Each session will be between 60-90 minutes dependent upon conversation from the participants. We also encourage participants to use the #leadership20 hashtag and share their learning on Twitter.
