Developing A Reflective Practice Of Professional Development, Connie Fulmer Oct 2015

Developing A Reflective Practice Of Professional Development, Connie Fulmer

Connie L. Fulmer

An alternative approach to the traditional methods of professional growth is the development of a "reflective practice." The learning process in reflective practice begins with the examination of an individual's own actions and contrasting the actions to the ideal or intent of the practice. The process results in behavioral changes that improve professional performance.

Unpacking The Evidence Of Gender Bias, Connie Fulmer Oct 2015

Unpacking The Evidence Of Gender Bias, Connie Fulmer

Connie L. Fulmer

The purpose of this study was to investigate gender bias in pre-service principals using the Gender-Leader Implicit Association Test. Analyses of student-learning narratives revealed how students made sense of gender bias (biased or not-biased) and how each reacted to evidence (surprised or not-surprised). Two implications were: (1) the need for leadership programs to help students identify and unpack gender bias, and (2) to provide new leaders with strategies to confront and reduce gender bias in the organizations in which they will lead. A model for identifying, confronting, and reducing gender bias is presented as scaffolding to help educational leadership faculty ...

Five Ideas For Reframing The Principalship, Thomas Bellamy, Connie Fulmer, Rodney Muth

Connie L. Fulmer

Schools, and especially principals, are challenged constantly to improve learning outcomes for students. We advance five ideas that should help principals address these challenges: (a) student learning "plus," (b) school accomplishments, (c) organizational context and depth of repertoire, (d) social and political context, and (e) leadership as an annual cycle.

School Culture For Students With Significant Support Needs: Belonging Is Not Enough, Diane Carroll, Connie Fulmer, Donna Sobel, Dorothy Garrison-Wade, Lorenso Aragon, Lisa Coval Oct 2015

School Culture For Students With Significant Support Needs: Belonging Is Not Enough, Diane Carroll, Connie Fulmer, Donna Sobel, Dorothy Garrison-Wade, Lorenso Aragon, Lisa Coval

Connie L. Fulmer

This qualitative study examined the influence of school culture on services for students with significant support needs. Students with significant support needs are defined as those who typically have cognitive impairments, often paired with sensory and physical challenges, and who require substantial supports to receive benefit from education. Using Schein's (1988) definition of culture, ethnographic methods, including observations, interviews and artifacts, were used to collect data related to artifacts, values, and assumptions. Results of this study indicate a strong sense of family, community and belonging. However, belonging did not include critical components of instruction as described as best practice ...

The Annual Case: Developing, Organizing, Using, And Disseminating Craft Knowledge, Rodney Muth, Thomas Bellamy, Connie Fulmer, Michael Murphy

Connie L. Fulmer

An annual-case process that examines principal leadership over the course of a year can provide extensive opportunities for practitioners and professors to collect, examine, and disseminate knowledge in, of, and about practice. Such cases can support professional development and pre-service preparation and become bases for research across multiple sites.


Training School Administrators To Use Information Systems: A Review Of Research, Connie Fulmer Oct 2015

Training School Administrators To Use Information Systems: A Review Of Research, Connie Fulmer

Connie L. Fulmer

Much attention and research has been focused on administrator preparation and school information systems as separate topics. However, very little attention has been focused on training school leaders to use these systems as decision making tools. While research findings signify the importance of this training, scarcely any research has been focused on the effectiveness of training models or other training issues. Therefore, to provide a foundation for further study, the purpose of this chapter is to summarize the extant research on training administrators to use information systems.


A Framework For School Leadership Accomplishments: Perspectives On Knowledge, Practice, And Preparation For Principals, Thomas Bellamy, Connie Fulmer, Rodney Muth Oct 2015

A Framework For School Leadership Accomplishments: Perspectives On Knowledge, Practice, And Preparation For Principals, Thomas Bellamy, Connie Fulmer, Rodney Muth

Connie L. Fulmer

The Framework for School Leadership Accomplishments (FSLA) is designed to facilitate thinking about, developing, and implementing school outcomes that improve student learning. The FSLA at once provides a means to organize knowledge in educational administration, an approach to practice that frames what schools can do to improve student learning, and a way to think about reconceptualizing principal preparation. Additionally, the FSLA and the proposed annual case process facilitate codification of craft knowledge for dissemination and use across unique school settings and preparation programs.
