School governance, educational leadership and organization
Education leadership and management as a research field has grown rapidly in recent years and contributes significantly to school research. UV Faculty research in this area is extensive.
Research on school leadership as a profession, learning at the workplace, management and accountability is seen in relation to more macro-oriented research on public management, organizational learning and curriculum development in schools. This creates fertile ground for high quality innovative research.
This field of research helps us better understand the consequences of organizing activities in certain ways, and it provides important new insights into the connections between learning outcome, management, governance and organizational forms within the educational system.
