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 focus of this podcast discussion will address the concerns of a newly appointed administrator who aspires to create a paradigm shift in the school in which she has assumed the role of principal. The panel will address leadership issues, developing Professional Learning Communities (PLC) and overcoming some insecurities that she may face as a novice administrator. We created fictitious roles in which each player represented a point of view. The roles were based on real experiences but with creative applications.
