International and Cross-cultural Educational Leadership Collaboration and Teaching IRN

IRN Start Date: March 15, 2013

 

 

Educational leadership has experienced impressive development over several decades, but a robust international and comparative branch has failed to emerge. This IRN promotes International and Cross-cultural Educational Leadership research relating to teaching, learning, collaboration, policy, and practice. Rigorous conceptualization and measurement of international and cross-cultural issues in educational leadership form the core of this research network, which will be developed through collaboration among participating scholars representing a variety of perspectives. In this IRN, educational leadership refers to administration roles at schools, universities, and other educational institutions that go beyond traditional management and administrative tasks.

 

A case is built for comparative and international educational leadership based on the knowledge that conceptual frameworks and instrumentation are imperative to keep abreast of globalization of policy and practice. Countries included in this IRN are the United States, China, Jamaica, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone and Kenya. Strategic partnerships among the participating scholars underscore the importance of interconnectedness in terms of qualitative research, collaboration, and cooperation and critical thinking skills in Educational Leadership.
