It draws on ground-breaking work with the National Union of Teachers to demonstrate a practical approach to identifying what makes a good school and the part that pupils, parents and teachers can play in school improvement. Its usefulness for and use by, classroom teachers to evaluate their practice will prove to be its greatest strength in an ever expanding effectiveness literature.

Written for heads and teachers, this forward-thinking book examines exactly what the relationship between inspection and self-evaluation means for schools and explores some of the underpinning issues, featuring examples of best practice from successful schools. It is full of useful advice on topics such as how schools can juggle ongoing self-evaluation with OFSTED’s expectations, how to use web sources to best advantage and what can be learnt from experience to lessen the anxiety in the relationship and make it more of a friendly and formative experience for all parties. Drawing on case studies from primary, secondary and special schools, this all-round overview should be of immediate interest to practitioners while also offering students and aspiring heads and teachers a valuable source of detailed information about the processes of inspection and self-assessment.

Self-evaluation in schools sits at the top of the national agenda in response to an awareness that performance tables and inspector's reports can only tell a partial story. Schools are now encouraged to raise questions about 'How are we doing?' and 'How do we know?'. Self-Evaluation: What's in it for Schools? demystifies school self-evaluation and encourages schools to be self-critical and self-confident. The book helps schools and teachers develop the necessary confidence to work with evaluation tools. Accessible and packed with case studies, it tackles the issues that are at the forefront of the national agenda in most countries in Europe. Challenging ideas for the future are given through discussion of the concerns and issues of schools in the present day.

Through real-life single and multiple case studies, Learning to Lead Together addresses how principals and their staffs struggle with the challenge of shared leadership, how they encourage teacher growth and development, and how shared leadership can lead to higher levels of student learning. The cases show how shared leadership, a powerful adaptive change, is socially constructed across contexts and evolves as teachers and principals learn how to work together. The book also illustrates how principal preparation and professional development programs that utilize problem-based learning and provide opportunities for genuine collaboration with colleagues can provide school leaders with the skills they need to share leadership and accountability effectively.

This edited text provides an international perspective on leadership and management roles and their relationship to improvement within educational institutions. The interactions of educational institutions are examined at local, national and global levels with case studies and examples being drawn from many countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. Two main themes are explored. The first is the move to site based management for educational institutions, linked to improvement. The second investigates the idea of learning for all and explores the ways in which leadership and management can contribute towards the development and enhancement of student learning, staff development and institutional growth. The authors, who are mainly drawn from the Institute of Education, University of London, make full use of the whole range of international literature relating to educational leadership, management and administration providing a textbook for masters-level students.

Los centros escolares y el profesorado se constituyeron, desde mediados de los años setenta del siglo XX, en dos nuevos ámbitos de evaluación. En su emergencia tuvo una influencia decisiva el movimiento de la accountability, o rendición de cuentas, que en el contexto anglosajón propició la obligación de que las instituciones educativas informaran periódicamente a la comunidad de sus logros y resultados, haciendo realidad el “derecho a saber”. A su implantación y desarrollo contribuyeron en gran medida las políticas educativas que abordaron, en los años noventa, la reforma de los sistemas educativos de cara a afrontar la mejora de su calidad. En el contexto de estas nuevas exigencias y condiciones, no cabe duda que la teoría y práctica de la evaluación institucional y de los docentes han ido adquiriendo un protagonismo estelar, como base sobre la que sustentar y legitimar las directrices de las políticas educativas que a nivel nacional se ponen en juego, para fundamentar las decisiones que necesitan tomarse en la conducción de los sistemas educativos, o para proveer a los centros y profesores de herramientas y datos que, además de facilitarles el conocimiento de sus quehaceres, les permitan profundizar en sus desarrollos institucional y profesional. A través de diez temas se hace un recorrido por los contenidos más relevantes del estado actual de estos dos ámbitos de evaluación. En una primera parte, temas 1 y 2, se analiza la conformación de este campo profesional de estudio e investigación y se clarifican sus bases teórico-conceptuales y los presupuestos de las distintas tradiciones científicas que fundamentan las diferentes propuestas y modelos de evaluación de centros y profesores. Las partes segunda y tercera están dedicadas monográficamente al estudio de cada uno de los ámbitos. Tanto en los centros, temas del 3 al 6, como en el profesorado, temas del 7 al 10, se empieza con la presentación de las orientaciones y perspectivas desde las que se pueden abordar la evaluación, y se finaliza con las características y experiencias de la evaluación institucional y del profesorado en el contexto universitario.

La Supervisión de Centros de Formación es uno de los campos temáticos que componen la asignatura Dirección y Supervisión de Centros de Formación. Su desarrollo se ha abordado a través de cinco temas en los que se presentan los elementos teóricos, prácticos y normativos que, de una u otra forma, sustentan sus cometidos y actuaciones. Básicamente, los contenidos se han centrado, entre otros, en hacer explícito un marco teórico-conceptual que clarifique y precise en qué consiste y cuáles son las características distintivas de la supervisión; en identificar sus tradiciones y modelos teóricos de actuación; en caracterizar y diferenciar sus funciones, en proponer la autoevaluación institucional como la modalidad de evaluación sobre la que sustentar la supervisión interna de las instituciones; y en analizar la evolución de las perspectivas de la supervisión según se ha ido regulando legalmente a lo largo del tiempo. Aunque tradicionalmente la supervisión es una de las funciones que asumen los servicios de inspección para conocer qué ocurre, cómo trabajan y cuáles son los logros de las instituciones educativas y de formación, es una labor que debería estar incorporada plenamente entre los quehaceres de los distintos actores educativos, como el equipo directivo, profesorado de los departamentos o seminarios, equipos docentes de áreas curriculares o asignatura, orientadores, etc. Es obvio que la labor educativa requiere que se conozca cómo se está desarrollando la enseñanza y aprendizaje en los distintos cursos y grupos, qué medidas han de irse tomando para regular y gestionar los proyectos educativos que se están llevando a cabo, cuáles son los elementos de coordinación intra e interdepartamental que han de reforzarse para facilitar el desempeño docente, etc. En definitiva, desde los propios centros se ha de tomar conciencia que para mejorar e innovar, así como para acometer los desarrollos institucional y profesional, es necesario visualizar con nitidez las luces y sombras de las instituciones y de sus actores.
