This introductory resource guide is for UVic Faculty of Education graduate students looking for supplementary resources held by UVic Libraries on the topic of leadership, policy, and administration in the field of education. Your best source of information for an introduction to educational leadership is your instructor or supervisor. Ask them for their recommendations of useful introductory resources. Let me know if you have recommendations for additional resources to be listed on this guide.
Sometimes students ask me where they can find information on trends in educational leadership. There are many videos on educational leadership uploaded on youtube, below are some of my recommendations. Be sure to also ask your instructor or supervisor for their suggestions.
