The Master of Arts in Leadership and Educational Change is an innovative new programme with a dual focus on organisational and curriculum leadership. Jointly taught by the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and Teachers College, Columbia University, New York, the programme seeks to prepare a new generation of educational leaders for Singapore, the Asia-Pacific region and the larger international community. The programme provides opportunities to build new cross-national learning communities and fraternities steeped in both local and global perspectives. Specifically, the programme will help you:
(a) appreciate the economic, cultural, and organisational contexts and tensions of interpreting and bringing about educational improvement and site-based curriculum development,
(b) value critical perspectives, diversity and difference and be open to various theoretical stances and practical approaches in educational leadership,
(c) understand the complexities and dynamics of transformational educational change, alongside necessary reforms to curriculum, pedagogy and assessment,
(d) assess challenges to educational change and develop strategies to overcome them, and
(e) plan, develop and implement educational improvement interventions and curricular innovations.
