Summer 2021 - EDUC 376 D100
Introduction to Educational Leadership (3)
Class Number: 2376
Delivery Method: Remote
Students will explore leadership within education institutions, including both formal and informal leadership experiences. Students will explore perceptions of leadership with the goal of growing their leadership skills and capacity. Students will explore leadership theories and research with the goal of placing their own understanding of leadership within current paradigms. Students who have taken EDUC 392 ST-Leadership & EDUC may not take EDUC 376 for further credit.
This course will meet remotely (virtually) on a weekly basis on Zoom. Participation in these synchronous ("live") sessions will be factored into the final grade. These weekly sessions will include small- and large-group discussions, as well as time for groupwork. These sessions will not include formal lectures, and will not be recorded.
COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:
- Assess the affordances of various theories and models of leadership,
- Analyze leadership practices as described/illustrated in case studies, current events, and popular culture,
- Reflect on one's own understandings of and beliefs about leadership,
- Engage in leadership opportunities within the class.

All required readings will be accessible through the SFU library or posted on CANVAS.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
TEACHING AT SFU IN SUMMER 2021
Teaching at SFU in summer 2021 will be conducted primarily through remote methods, but we will continue to have in-person experiential activities for a selection of courses. Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (email@example.com or 778-782-3112).
