  • Do it Yourself in Education: Leadership for Learning across Physical and
           Virtual Borders

    • Authors: Maria Domingo-Coscollola, Judith Arrazola-Carballo, Juana Maria Sancho-Gil
      Pages: 5 - 29
      Abstract: Today more than ever, educational institutions need educational leaders who are able to promote profound, substantive and sustainable change. This paper is based on the efforts and results of the first stage of a European project implemented in universities and primary and secondary schools in Spain, Finland and the Czech Republic. The project seeks to explore the changes (and its educational effects) that have occurred in the last decade regarding digital competencies, especially in relation to the emergence of a culture of collaboration that connects youth learning, technology and a Do-it-Yourself (DIY) ethos. To achieve the project's objective, we followed a methodology based on the principles of collaborative action research (CAR). We have analysed the curricula and study plans of the participating institutions in order to explore how and where the project could be applied. We conducted a series of focus groups with teachers, students and parents to discuss notions of DIY learning among the educational communities. Based on these discussions, we began to analyse how each context envisions DIY learning and how it relates to the notion of virtual space. We finished the first stage with the professional development of the teachers, which was aimed at shaping the DIYLabs implementation plan.

      Abstract: Scholars and practitioners agree that instructional leadership (IL) can be one of the most useful tools for creating an effective teaching and learning environment. This paper investigates the instructional leadership practices engaged in by heads of secondary schools to enhance classroom instruction and students learning, particularly the way they manage the school instructional programme. Two objectives guided the study: to explore the informants’ understanding on the concept of instructional leadership; and to examine the role played by heads of schools (HoSs) in managing the instructional programme to enhance teachers’ classroom instruction and students’ learning. It draws on the qualitative data generated from interviews, focus group discussions, and observations. The informants for this study were HoSs, senior academic masters/mistresses, teachers and students. The study findings confirm that HoSs, SAMs, teachers and students were not familiar with the concept of instructional leadership. On the other hand the instructional programme was not effectively managed as heads of departments were not involved in curriculum coordination, syllabi were not covered on time, and HoSs did not undertake classroom observations or engage in review of curriculum materials. The paper, however, concludes that without an effective management of the instructional programme in favour of promoting teachers’ classroom instruction and students’ learning, efforts to that effect are doomed to fail.

  • University Organizational Culture through Insider Eyes: A Case Study of a
           Writing Program

    • Authors: Sharon Conley
      Pages: 48 - 71
      Abstract: Using a case study approach, the authors examined university administrator and instructor perspectives about a writing program's organizational culture. In so doing, members of the writing program were invited to participate in interviews over a three-year period. The case study suggests that examples of culture through a three-lens perspective (integration, differentiation, and fragmentation) provided a more nuanced reading of the program's identity than a single lens could. The authors suggested that this wider frame of organizational culture for understanding policy and practice has implications for leadership in such areas as personnel evaluation and the encouragement of experimentation with teaching.

  • Modelo marco de gestión del conocimiento para una carrera en
           Universidadad pública

    • Pages: 72 - 95
      Abstract: Uno de los fines de la Universidad es crear y difundir el conocimiento; la administración de una carrera universitaria tiene que adaptarse a los cambios de cómo manejar su propio conocimiento necesario para cumplir ese propósito. Este trabajo presenta un modelo marco de gestión del conocimiento que promueve el desarrollo académico óptimo de la carrera de ingeniería en computación e informática. Un modelo marco provee un punto de referencia para facilitar la administración: define un conjunto consistente de términos y conceptos, que ayuda a comunicarse los administradores, profesores, estudiantes y comunidad en general, evitando alguna confusión y enfocarse en un mismo esfuerzo de gestión; describe un proceso que provee una dirección para las actividades con lo cual se simplifica la toma de decisiones. El modelo se ha construido tomando como referencia modelos difundidos en fuentes acreditadas y ha sido adecuado para nuestra realidad. Implementar el modelo marco hará que el desarrollo académico de la carrera mejore substancialmente, lo que se verá reflejado en la competitividad del egresado.
