Building pedagogical leadership capacity within systems and schools has been shown to be critical to improving learning outcomes. Pedagogical leaders play an important role within learning organisations as the facilitators of professional conversations designed to model, explore and develop quality learning and teaching practices for organization wide application. In order to provide such pivotal guidance processes of knowledge acquisition, application in context and deep reflection need to be understood and utilised at both personal and organizational levels.

This course is designed to bring theory and practice together in an authentic workplace setting. Students will therefore need to be active participants in an educational setting. Engagement with a range of pedagogies will focus students on investigating suitable approaches for their diverse contexts, cultures, organizational settings, external frameworks and learner needs. Research, reflective processes and professional conversations will be utilised to build the skills and knowledge for pedagogical leadership.
