    This unit will introduce students to the processes that support positive change in educational organisations. Through the exploration of theories and concepts influencing leadership and management within a variety of learning environments, the unit will focus upon the implementation of change; that is, the putting of ideas successfully into practice through effective leadership and management, dealing with the meanings of leading change from various perspectives, and leading change as cultural transformation.
