Empowering school leaders and local school communities through distributed leadership in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic

Project: Research

Project Details


A series of crisis events over the last two years including Covid-19 has challenged school leaders and highlighted the need to implement effective policy and strategies to sustain their school communities. This research project uses a mixed methods approach aimed to examine, develop and empower school leadership capacity in two ACT Directorate schools, Narrabundah College and Mount Stromlo High School. The approach taken involves a strong collaboration with school leaders from the two schools and staff from the ACT Education Directorate, to design and implement the research project. Distributed leadership is the theoretical model which will inform the research focus. The project will have significant impact by leveraging the research findings to benefit the two participating schools and the broader school community in the ACT by providing evidence and strategies for building school leadership capacity especially through Professional Learning Communities (PLC) groups. The research project will result in a number of outputs, including a professional report, and two academic journal papers, professional learning presentations and a conference presentation.
