Goal Pursuit in Education Using Focused Action Research PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Goal Pursuit in Education Using Focused Action Research free pdf This book is written in response to escalating international research showing the importance of alignment and focus of goals in education. However, I am painfully aware that not everyone, including myself, finds it easy to focus on goals through to full pursuit. This pain has led me to create a simple approach to goal pursuit fitting my own inclinations favoring depth of development, lift in performance, and a fascination with a collaborative action research approach to improvement. The book is important for all in education given that goals are integral to strategic and team planning, individual performance review, and focus for learning and development. It is written in a practical, readable way but is theoretically informed so would appeal to scholars, scholar-practitioners, and practitioners. It introduces new thinking on neuroscience and neuroleadership linked to goals. Multiple practical, downloadable, tools for goal pursuit are provided as well as a case study showing how one school applied the model and tools.
