Yi-Hwa Liou, National Taipei University of Education; Yun-Jia Lo, University of Michigan; Alan J. Daly, University of California, San Diego

This work attempts to re-examine instructional leadership from a peer in uence perspective within a districtwide collaboration network of leaders. This study further investigates the kind of instructional leadership that is shaped by peer perceptions during collaboration among a districtwide leadership team in one large school district implementing CCSS in California. Findings suggest that organizational learning and personal beliefs perceived by peer collaborators are associated with individual leaders’ perceived instructional leadership.

A Developmental School Learning Trajectory: A Conceptual Framework to Support Organizational Learning. Jessica G. Rigby, University of Washington; Anita Lenges, University of Washington; Elham Kazemi, University of Washington; Lynsey Gibbons, Boston University; Stephanie Forman, University of Washington

This conceptual piece outlines a framework for considering a principled approach to schools as learning organizations. To ground the conceptual argument, we examine how elementary school leaders organize the implementation of a professional development model for helping teachers learn how to teach inquiry-based mathematics. We argue that there is a developmental trajectory in three speci c areas: knowledge integration, structural integration, and principled engagement.
