ECA 725 Instructional Leadership: Supervision and Administration of Educational Personnel - 3 credits
Leaders in all roles must see their purpose as improving student learning. In this course we focus on practices that supervisors can use to create a culture where all staff members recognize this as the goal and work toward achieving it. Best practices in formative and summative evaluation of staff are investigated. Students learn methods and laws connected with the selection, hiring, support and dismissal of staff. Particular attention is paid to the role of professional development and its implementation, including mentoring for new staff.
