You are invited to a seminar lead by Howard Youngs. He will be visiting the School on the 18th and 19th July, 2012. Howard is a Senior Lecturer at Unitec, Auckland, and he is the Programme Leader of the Master of Educational Leadership and Management. Howard is in the process of completing his PhD with Martin Thrupp at Waikato, and he is coming to visit Dave and Helen Gunter to talk about our work on education policy with specific reference to our recent project with Jo Bragg on distributed leadership.
Howard will lead a seminar for the School on Wednesday 18th July at 11.30 in room C3.30, and he will speak to the question: Is it time to reject the grand narrative ‘distributed leadership’? He will examine the major investment in this preferred approach to school leadership, and he will then go on to ‘trouble’ it and examine other approaches to leadership.
