Abstract

In dit artikel in Teaching and Teacher Education beschrijven HvA-lector Marco Snoek en Monique Volman de uitkomsten van een onderzoek naar een masteropleiding die gericht is op het ontwikkelen van leiderschap van leraren en op de impact van dat leiderschap op scholen. ‘The transfer of learning outcomes of Master’s programs for teachers is not self-evident. In this study, 18 teachers who recently graduated and their supervisors were interviewed on the transfer of leadership competences developed during their Master’s program and on how the organizational transfer climate of the school supported or hindered this transfer. In schools with high levels of transfer, strategic partnerships between Master’s-level teachers and formal leaders were observed, which facilitated a two-way process in which the application of new competences led to changes in the workplace. Therefore, the Master’s program contributed to both professional development and school improvement.’
