What is our best present understanding of good school leadership? How do I lead my school to make it relevant to students of the 21st century? The idea for this book grew out of an international conference organized by the National College for School Leadership, An International Future: learning from best practice worldwide, which explored innovative and significant aspects of educational leadership and brought together international colleagues to generate new understandings. The conference proved a dynamic forum for debate for researchers, academics, policy-makers and practitioners. It was clear at the conference that there was a consensus of understanding around certain key themes that crossed national boundaries. In Developing Leadership, well-known international contributors explore this consensus to promote the key themes which reflect our best present understanding of good school leadership, and to inform school leaders about leading edge thinking which bears on their role. These key ideas, which are highlighted at various points throughout the book, are built around professional learning communities; distributed leadership; strategic thinking about ICT; sustainability; internship; mentoring and coaching. Contributors: Ray Bolam, Martin Coles, Gary Crow, Clive Dimmock, Dean Fink, David Green, Andy Hargreaves, Sing Kong Lee, Bill Mulford, Fred Paterson, Tony Richardson, Geoff Southworth, James Spillane, Louise Stoll, Ken Stott, Allan Walker, John West-Burnham

Through real-life single and multiple case studies, Learning to Lead Together addresses how principals and their staffs struggle with the challenge of shared leadership, how they encourage teacher growth and development, and how shared leadership can lead to higher levels of student learning. The cases show how shared leadership, a powerful adaptive change, is socially constructed across contexts and evolves as teachers and principals learn how to work together. The book also illustrates how principal preparation and professional development programs that utilize problem-based learning and provide opportunities for genuine collaboration with colleagues can provide school leaders with the skills they need to share leadership and accountability effectively.

The best known book in the field, Supervision: A Redefinition is a research-based guide to the practice and philosophy of supervision. Practical applications are supported by a conception of supervision as moral agency, and the book continues to promote a redefinition of supervision from a traditional top-down hierarchy to a shared activity involving all stake-holders in the school--including teachers, administrators, and parents. The eighth edition continues a thirty-plus year tradition of breaking new ground by reconsidering the field of supervision in response to changing school contexts, policies, and realities. The new edition shows even more clearly how the book's ideas can be used to help supervisors improve their effectiveness: practical suggestions abound.
