The Educational Leadership Program builds on Carroll's rich tradition of quality educator preparation by contributing to the number of effective administrators in PK-12 schools. The program contains project-based and performance-based learning opportunities to support candidate knowledge, skills and dispositions for Educational Leadership.
The Master of Education in Educational Leadership program includes the requirements for licensure #10 Director of Instruction and/or #51 Principal. The Educational Leadership Program reflects the Wisconsin Administrator Standards, the Educational Leadership Policy Standards - Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC), and the National Policy Board for Educational Administration (NPBEA) Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC).
The Value of a Learning Community Model
The Educational Leadership Program is delivered through a Learning Community. Participants meet together one weekend a month over a twenty month period. Interacting with a group of peers at periodic intervals provides students time and space to examine issues thoughtfully and collaboratively – creating a community of learning that’s self-sustaining. Each cohort is co-facilitated by two instructors who follow the program through its entirety.
