Teams & Teamwork

Mayrowetz, D. (2008). "Making Sense of Distributed Leadership: Exploring the Multiple Usages of the Concept in the Field." Educational Administration Quarterly 44(3): 424-435. Gunther, H. and T. Fitzgerald (2007). "Leading Learning and Leading Teachers: Challenges for schools in the 21st century." Leading & Managing 13(1): 1-15.

Some researchers have argued eloquently that distributed leadership can lead to improved effectiveness (Mayrowetz p. 429)

Educational Leadership

USAGE 1: A THEORETICAL LENS FOR LOOKING AT THE ACTIVITY OF LEADERSHIP

USAGE 2: DISTRIBUTED LEADERSHIP FOR DEMOCRACY

USAGE 3: DISTRIBUTED LEADERSHIP FOR EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS

USAGE 4: DISTRIBUTED LEADERSHIP AS HUMAN CAPACITY BUILDING

In the Massachusetts SAELP, reform designers believed distributed leadership was a vehicle to match subordinates with tasks they could perform well. (Mayrowetz p. 430)

State Action Educational Leadership Projects

This might be, perhaps, another example of economics taking precidence over well planned and considered succession planning

Leading Learning and Leading Teachers

Gunther, H. and T. Fitzgerald (2007). "Leading Learning and Leading Teachers: Challenges for schools in the 21st century." Leading & Managing 13(1): 1-15.

It would seem therefore, the legislative pen created several divisions within schools. One of the more explicit divisions was between those who were labelled as 'school leaders' or 'school managers' and positioned in a hierarchy above 'teachers'. The inference was that those in an elite position in schools practiced leadership and management. (Gunther, H. and T. Fitzgerald p. 2)

As schools developed bureaucratic models to meet increased demands for efficiency and accountability, and the increased control of the purposes of schools and schooling by central government has meant that school structures have tended to be determined by external reforms. (Gunther, H. and T. Fitzgerald p. 4)

Between this senior level and teachers is a group of middle leaders whose primary responsibility lies in a curriculum/subject area, year level or the pastoral care and discipline of students. (Gunther, H. and T. Fitzgerald p. 4)

Tasks and activities that can be identified as being 'middle level' (Gunther, H. and T. Fitzgerald p. 4)

It is not automatically assumed that being a leader, doing leading, and exercising leadership is initiated by the headteacher/principal; others can set the agenda and work for appropriate learning. (Gunther, H. and T. Fitzgerald p. 4)

At WIOT this is very much the case. Within reason 'go getters' are nurtured and supported as long as the outcomes meet strategic and operational goals and most importantly they increase the value of the students learning experience.
