This unit draws from a range of philosophical and ideological ideas to explore concepts such as leadership, and organizational leadership and management specifically in the field of education. Concepts of leading and managing are investigated in the light of what is known about `western' and non-western knowledge practices and how they shape understandings and practice when applied to the field of education. Implications are explored for how leaders work with the day-to-day circumstances they face in organisations that promote a greater awareness of global learning. Students work towards developing a statement of professional learning about leadership to inform their ongoing professional practice.
