Professional Development for Educational Management by Lesley Kydd
Book DescriptionThis book begins from the perspective that organizational effectiveness will be improved if the individuals within the organization are engaged in developing professionally. It takes the individual as the key resource of any institution and the notion of professional development as the key to the learning of educational managers. This book offers both theoretical and practical perspectives on the key components of professional development linking reflection and knowledge with skills and capabilities. It then takes educational managers on to consider the systems and tasks which they have to undertake in managing the professional development of others - from selecting the right person for the job to setting up appropriate appraisal systems. This book provides educational managers and those interested in the field with an introduction to the processes and skills which they will need in managing educational establishments both now and in the future. This volume forms part of the Leadership and Management in Education series. This four book series provides a carefully chosen selection of high quality readings on key contemporary themes in educational management: professional development, reflection on practice, leadership, team working, effectiveness and improvement, quality, strategy and resources. The series will be an important resource for classroom teachers and lecturers as well as those holding designated management posts in schools and colleges and will provide a valuable basis for professional development programmes.
