Fostering Global Competency and Continuous Improvement for Educational Leadership Preparation Programs

Your Name and Title:  Glenn L. Koonce, Ed.D., Chair, Educational Leadership Program


School or Organization Name:  Regent University

Area of the World from Which You Will Present:  Virginia, United States

Language in Which You Will Present:  English

Target Audience(s):  Educational Leadership Preparation Professors/Administrators

Short Session Description (one line):  A connection between the evidence of program outcomes in educational leadership preparation programs to actions needed for continuous improvement


Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

The landscape for program accountability in K-12 school leadership preparation can be daunting for even the most seasoned professor or higher education administrator. The rising demands in today’s accountability-driven environment are prevalent around the world. This accountability requires individuals to have the knowledge and skills needed to provide evidence that all accrediting agencies and program approval agency standards are met or exceeded and that there is continuous improvement in program outcomes. For an educational leadership preparation program in the United States, four accreditors/program approval agencies include: the National Policy Board for Educational Administration (NCPEA), the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), and the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE). Accountability for student achievement and closing achievement gaps has led to school leadership being a global policy priority, but preparation of the school leaders to implement and lead change for continuous improvement differs between countries. Two issues emerged both in the United States and globally: 1) a lack of qualified school leaders for the position of principal and 2) growing contention that university preparation programs were not preparing the kind of leaders the schools now required. One major global organization for understanding school leadership is the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OCED. The objective of this presentation is to address improvement in university educational leadership preparation programs through the process of accreditation, program approval, and continuous improvement to enrich international conversations and build a global discourse in the preparation of school leaders

Thank you for your proposal. Please review our mission and consider editing your proposal to reflect ties to our focus: https://www.globaleducationconference.org/page/our-mission. We are not a general education conference nor an ICT conference; all proposals must have some international component that is clearly referenced in the proposal.
