Transformative Preparation and Professional Development: Authentic Reflective Practice for School LeadershipTeaching and Learning: The Journal of Natural Inquiry and Reflective Practice (2012)
In this conceptual paper, Western scholarship from both within and beyond the field is reviewed, and theory is provided to support practical authentic pedagogical applications useful in the development of school leaders. A transformative professional learning experience fosters reflective practice and processes that elaborate and clarify core professional ideas, experiences, and questions within the personal and professional contexts of school leadership. This article offers conceptualizations of reflective practice alternatives that can further inform school administrators and enable them to meet the demands of increasingly challenging work within the public schools.
