Learning Transfer: The Missing Link to Leading the Successful Implementation of Professional Development in Schools
This book serves as an instructional tool for development of skills related to the organizational leadership of adults. The text offers teaching cases that explicitly partner the leadership and adult development literature bases so readers can work to apply leadership for adult development to real-world scenarios.
Case Studies in Leadership and Adult Development: Applying Theoretical Perspectives to Real World Challenges consists of 19 chapters, organized into three parts. Part I includes four chapters drawn from business and industry leaders' experiences encompassing cases from nonprofit, for-profit, and non-governmental agencies. Part II delves into three chapters that focus on the challenges of leading through crisis, including how the Coronavirus pandemic shapes decision making and impacts leadership in both K - 12 and higher education environments. Part III offers a comprehensive view of education through 12 chapters, four of which are drawn from higher education settings. Part III's balance includes cases from elementary, middle, and secondary schools and district-level leadership.
Written for graduate level courses in adult education, each case focuses on at least one major theory from both the leadership and adult development domains. Including questions for discussion and reflection, the book allows students to explore the linkages between leadership theories and adult development theories within the context of real-world scenarios.
