Participants: Transformative Learning in Principal Leadership Development Taeyeon Kim, Michigan State University The purpose of this study is to examine how school principals experience transformative learning in relation to leadership development and how these experiences affect principals’ perceptions and actions. By using qualitative data collected through in-depth interviews with ten school principals in K-12 level, this study examines the process of principals’ transformative learning. Analyzing principals’ leadership development with a transformative learning theory lens is useful to expand theoretical discourses in leadership and to draw practical implications. Leading from the Inside Out: Examining Principal Efficacy and Practice Lori Wilt Silver, George Mason University Social cognitive research in efficacy is one lens for examining not only how effectiveness is identified, enacted, and evaluated within schools, but how efficacy may be manifested and demonstrated at leadership positions and collective levels. This paper is meant to provide a review of the broad conceptual study of efficacy and its relationship to leadership practices. School Leaders and School Leadership Standards: An Exploratory Case Study Annie Reinish, University of Michigan The purpose of this paper is to examine how current K-12 mentor principals in one Midwestern state make sense of and utilize school leadership preparation standards. This qualitative, exploratory case study used interview data from a purposive sample of eight principal mentors in a diverse group of schools. Findings suggest that school leadership standards are a useful tool for mentoring aspiring school leaders, but the way in which this tool is understood and utilized varies. Cultivating Leadership for School and Community Change: A Case Study of Theory, Research and Practice Samuel Garcia, Texas State University This qualitative study examines a nuanced space of school leadership by examining the formal educational experiences of teachers enrolled in the emerging leaders pilot program. The emerging leaders pilot program was imagined and implemented after a sustained conversation and mutual partnership between the university and the local school district. Facilitator: Gary Crow, Indiana University
