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.

On this episode we revisit the topic of Annual Professional Performance Reviews (APPR). Dr. Bernato talks with retired Glen Cove superintendent Dr. Larry Aronstein, addressing the challenges, confusion, and potential surrounding the pending changes to New York State's APPR guidelines. Dr. Aronstein discusses current evaluation practices and the need to "flip the paradigm" to a non-judgemental one that supports reflective practice.The conversation also turns to alternatives such as action research, peer review, collegial circles, and the need for continuing in-service education for teachers.
