Relational Inquiry in Educational Administration and Leadership

Monday, July 9, 2018 at 1:30 pm in the Community Room (1139)

The relational research program offers a fruitful approach to the study of educational administration and leadership. Built on five relational extensions and three key concepts, it offers a means of engaging with the messiness of the social world while focused on making a productive contribution. In this workshop Dr. Eacott will facilitate dialogue and debate concerning how one might go about mobilizing the relational methodology in developing a research project, or writing a dissertation / thesis, journal article, or book. Drawing on actual examples from Honours, doctoral projects and his own work, this hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the relational template, a resource developed by Dr. Eacott to assist those mobilizing the relational approach in their writing projects.

 

A Relational Approach to Educational Leadership

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at 1:30 pm in the Community Room (1139)

Educating is political. Decisions regarding what is taught, how it is taught, and how students are assessed reflect a version of what makes an effective school. Of course what is judged as effective is contested, but do we contest? I have no doubts that schools are good at what they prioritise – but are they clear about those priorities? In this seminar presentation Dr. Eacott works through his relational approach to propose a flipped approached to school leadership. His core argument is built on three matters: i) effectiveness begins with clarity of purpose; ii) you are judged on your level of coherence against that purpose; and iii) you construct the narrative for your school. The result is a broad principle that recognises there is one size fits all approach to education, an embrace of professionalism in the justification of practices, and flipping the criteria for effective to educators and not those outside of schools. When taken together, this argument is about empowering educators to build a version of education and enacting that in the interests of students.
