The rapid social change and associated educational (re)developments in global development in the past decades has given rise to multiple and unprecedented challenges to the capacities of teachers, school leaders and policy makers. Against this background, this Specialized Area: Leadership for Future School (LFS), is designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge of major issues relating to the three domains, globally and regionally. Students who complete the specialization will be equipped to utilize theoretical frameworks to analyse, debate and transform their understanding in at least one of the following areas: teacher professional development, education policy and leadership. In addition, students will also be able to adapt the frameworks for improvement and innovation in multiple social and educational settings.
