Leading for Learning: A New Faculty Research Agenda
Rosalba Corrado Del Vecchio, Department of Administration and Instructional Leadership, The School of Education
This presentation focuses on the development of the research agenda of a new professor through illustrations that depict both content and process. The researcher will share examples of two paper proposals, in progress, that have been accepted for presentation at two Conferences. One emphasizes leadership development in education: Preparing the Next Generations of Principals, a research study which answered a call for proposals from AERA Division A/ Global Interactions, and was selected for presentation at the 2007 International Leadership Conference, in Beijing, China, August 10-13, 2007. The second paper is based on the researcher dissertation study: Leading for Professional Learning- The Director of Professional Development, which was selected for presentation at the National Staff Development Council (NSCD), in Dallas, TX, December 1-5, 2007. It documents how professional learning at the school site is constrained or facilitated by outside agents and factors that either support or impede school improvement efforts.
