Abstract [en]

This ongoing project is based on an attempt to create a reflective space for principals in training. Inspired by research on professional self-study and practice architecture theory as a theoretical, methodological and transformative resource, we provided participants with a structure that would help them observe, document and reflect upon their leadership practice. 

 

The aim of this presentation is to explore how this structure is enabling and constraining principals´ learning practice and change in leadership practice. Qualitative research methods were used to analyze the data, consisting of 189 observation documents, including participants´ reflection, and 63 final reports based on these documents. Overall, results support the intentions of the project. However, some participants struggle with the structure and/or find its underpinning theory difficult to grasp. Knowledge about these problems provides a basis for further development of the structure and our own instructional practice in relation to it.
