Educational Leadership: Inquiry in Organisations and Communities

This paper critically examines the contextual and relational nature of educational leadership in learning organisations. Through examining and employing fundamental principles of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) - a positive and engaging approach to purposeful organisational change, and Action Research (AR), a process of selfreflective inquiry, participants will examine and develop their theoretical and practical understandings of their professional and leadership practice in their learning community. This paper seeks to enhance the participant's ability to work with their community in terms of the development of individuals and the relationships that exist collectively.
