Learning Objectives



Expected Date of Completion: _____________


The first course offered by the LEEEGH in leadership development had the following goals:

  1. Defining Leadership. Assisting teachers in developing their own working definitions of leadership and discussing with them our own working definition of leadership.
  2. Identifying and discussing key leadership skills, traits, and styles appropriate for teachers
  3. Leadership Self-Assessment – (Level 1 Leadership in our book)
  4. Assessing others’ leadership skills and styles – Perception – (Level 2 Leadership in our book)
  5. Key attributes of inspiring, motivating, and enrolling others – (Level 3 Leadership in our book)
  6. Leadership as goal setting at the organizational level, and taking responsibility for process development and results – Develop – (Level 4 Leadership in our book)
  7. Key aspects of mentoring and being mentored by others, including teachers
  8. Leading students and student activities– challenges, pitfalls, assessing and getting feedback
  9. Leading parents and collaborating with parents and other stakeholders and supporters of the school
  10. How to form leadership groups that meet regularly and other forms of leadership support/activities among teachers
  11. How to apply these leadership strategies, skills, and principles outside of the school environment
  12. Resource development and “resource capture” as a leadership skill (enrolling others to assist, delegation, motivation)
  13. Visioning for the individual teacher, with emphasis on how to accomplish or make great strides quickly toward achieving the vision and how to measure the progress

These goals should be restated as learning objectives to match the language used by educators. Some of these goals translate into learning objectives and some do not since we are seeking to achieve “skill objectives” rather than “learning objectives” as the essential element of value created for the teachers we train. THE LEEEGH recognized that one must learn things to achieve a skill and learning is a critical component of our training. Therefore, this document shall begin the process of documenting the learning objectives of our leadership training program.


When THE LEEEGH created courses for both UNC and UCD we provided learning objectives to both institutions with our curriculum. They were:

1. To demonstrate the important role of Teachers as Leaders in our community and country
2. Learn best practice leadership skills, traits, and styles
3. Identify Teachers leadership role in the various audiences of the learning environment
