For this fourth episode of the podcast Nuance in educationMarc-André Girard discusses the concept of shared leadership.
Gone is the traditional top-down leadership in the school? Shared leadership is based on trust and horizontal relationships. Principals open up to the school's pedagogical sphere and teachers exercise their pedagogical leadership in the school, all in a perspective of transformation of practices and innovation.
In this episodeMarc-André analyzes the concept of shared leadership by drawing on references from educational research as well as anthropological and entrepreneurial thinking.
