Common Sense Management for Educational Leaders
This project is a book-length manuscript addressing the problems, issues, and challenges educational leaders face in a rapidly changing world. The introduction describes the strategic mind-set, which focuses on using information, taking advantage of new opportunities, being creative, and the importance of communication and consensus-building among stakeholders. We then systematically describe the common sense five-step model (market research, direction setting, strategy development, strategy implementation, and outcome assessment), a proven tool for managing strategically. projects graphic

Challenges in Implementing Distance Learning Programs

Morrison URLs of pertinent articles along with a brief statement of how the article addresses the challenge. We hope that this page becomes an informative resource for colleagues struggling with implementing distance learning programs.
