This syllabus from the University of Connecticut Administrator Preparation Program (UCAPP) outlines a hybrid course that introduces a variety of learning theories as the foundation for school leader practices and decisions. Beyond pedagogy and school-age learner learning theories, the course focuses in depth on adult learning concepts, research, and theory in relation to professional and organizational learning in a school/system context. In addition, this course explores the role of new media applications and Web 2.0 to professional learning and human resource development in education. Required texts include Professional Development That Sticks: How Do I Create Meaningful Learning Experiences for Educators? (Ende, 2016), Rock My Soul: Black People and Self-Esteem (Hook, 2003), and Personalized Professional Learning: A Job-Embedded Pathway for Elevating Teacher Voice (Rodman, 2019).
