Participants: Educational Leadership Beyond School Walls: Engaging Immigrant Latino Families Through Learning from Community-Based Initiatives Elizabeth Gil, Michigan State University Educational leaders can tap into existing community-based ties of the increasingly diverse populations of students and families they serve. They can re-envision leadership by looking beyond school walls in order to better understand and connect with their schools’ students and families. This presentation encourages leaders to refresh practice by learning from effective practices community-based initiatives implement to engage their constituents, and invites leaders to redefine student success by considering holistic aspects of students’ schooling experiences. Ethnographic Case Study of Collaborative Leadership Structures Gregory R VanHorn, Ohio State University This ethnographic case study will expand current scholarship that explores how teams of teachers and administrators collaboratively increase their collective capacity to extend better learning opportunities for all students. The study will seek insights for educators to better understand how teams of teachers and administrators use student data, collaborative inquiry, and reflection to derive meaningful research-based teaching strategies in order to meet each student’s learning needs within sociocultural, organizational and situated learning environments. Understanding Faculty Laggards and Administrative Technologies Robert Benjamin Simon, Clemson University Universities spend an estimated eight billion dollars annually on information technology advancement, particularly enterprise software programs. However, there is a dearth of literature on the benefits of said innovations, which has forced managers to operate without proven strategies, and rely on inefficient communication strategies during implementations. This session will outline a qualitative study attempting to better understand those individuals least likely to adopt innovations, but to whom communication strategies should be tailored: laggards (Rogers, 2003). Cultivating Kinship:The Doctoral Student’s Role in a Successful Cohort Model Cori Canty Woessner, University of Denver; Rana T Razzaque, University of Denver; Tina Louise Goar, University of Denver; Mary Graft, University of Denver This presentation is a visually intriguing elicitation of how a cohort with strong ties has been impacted in its learning, resiliency and sense of community through its structure. Bandura’s social learning theory and Tinto’s framework of classrooms as communities are the guiding theoretical frameworks underlying this research. Audience members will understand their agency in creating connections among peers to further develop deep learning for themselves and others, and to support group efforts towards degree completion. Facilitator: James W. Koschoreck, Northern Kentucky University
