Research Leadership Learning Podcast

Welcome to the Research Leadership Learning Podcast from Dowling College's Research Leadership Learning Center.

On this podcast we explore many fields of knowledge related to leadership in social agencies, bringing you conversations with teachers, principals, superintendents and others working in and around the Long Island region, including Dowling faculty and Dowling doctoral candidates. By sharing research and knowledge from the field, we hope to develop a profound human awareness among leaders of social agencies in Nassau and Suffolk Counties and beyond.

The topic today is effective schools, excellence, and instructional leadership. Dr. Manley speaks with Dr. Patricia Blake about these issues as they related to her doctoral research at Dowling into charter schools. They are joined by Dr. Tom Kelly, who shares his own research into effective schools along with the ideas of Ron Edmonds, W. Edwards Deming and William Glasser. The conversation ranges from individualized education plans (IEPs), and literacy to systems thinking and character education.
