This book provides a rich range of case studies and theoretical and methodological perspectives on the practical leadership tasks that underpin educational change. Section 1 focuses on the nature of professional learning and the policy context in which educational reform takes place. Section 2 explores the forms of leadership relevant to the differing contexts of professional development. Section 3 explores mentoring, peer coaching, team and group work. These processes are examined through international experience and by reference to work in other professions. Section 4 analyses the experience of evidence based work in medicine and the health service and the potential of applying this to education. The section reviews contested views on this theme. Section 5 looks at the potential role that interactive technologies can play in professional development.
