Learning to Lead for Transformation: An African Perspective on Educational Leadership (Paperback)

£24.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Learning to Lead for Transformation takes an international and inclusive approach, exploring learning and educational leadership from different cultural and theoretical perspectives, from Habermas' theory of cognitive interests to Freire's approach to education and Ngara's decolonized epistemology and Ubuntu-based developmental approach. Enriching his presentation with Japanese and Western examples, Ngara uses the African tradition of storytelling as well as engaging exercises to explore:

The developmental approach to teaching and learning

The link between the proposed pedagogy and leadership development

The importance of relevant curriculum content

The importance of approaches based on indigenous knowledge systems or cultural traditions.





Each topic is introduced with a "tuning in exercise", and the reader is guided to reflect on their own experiences and understanding throughout the book with discussion points and activities. The book is supported by a companion website hosting additional resources, including lecturer presentations.
