EDL 738 - Ethical Leadership in Education

This course is designed to challenge educators to become ethical leaders who recognize leadership in an educational setting as a fundamentally moral activity. Buffeted by competing and often conflicting values, interests and political agendas, educational leaders are routinely presented ethical and moral dilemmas as the context for their decision making. For depth of understanding, this course will engage students in an examination and discussion of major theoretical models of ethical decision-making that are negative as well as those traditionally valued as positive. Through examination and discussion of multiple theoretical frameworks juxtaposed to situational moral dilemmas commonly faced by school leaders, students will be coached through the process of identifying and adopting their own core values to guide their own principled decision making as aspiring school leaders.
