Announcing CAEL for Graduate Credit
There is now an option to complete CAEL modules for HGSE graduate credit beginning the February 2021 Term. The tuition is $2,995 per person/module. Please note that the application, as well as acceptance specifications, differ from the non-credit CAEL requirements. Should you not be ultimately admitted to the program for HGSE graduate credit, you can always apply and enroll as a non-credit CAEL participant.
Discover how intentional self-development can help you become a transformative leader.
Leaders often underestimate the power they have to make change. By paying attention to our personal growth, we can deepen our impact as leaders. In Developing Myself, you will learn the importance of intentional self-development and use a variety of tools to support that development. Practices like deep listening, the ladder of inference, and testing big assumptions will help you to improve professional relationships, diagnose challenges, and achieve personal leadership goals. You will leverage both the relationships you will form with others in the module and existing relationships within your current contexts as invaluable resources for your growth. The concepts and tools offered in this module will help you develop your capacity to diagnose and respond successfully to the complex demands inherent in systems-level education leadership.
Developing Myself takes place over 12 weeks, moving through a cycle of learning, application, performance, and demonstration. Throughout, you will engage in a range of activities online, plus exercises carried out in your personal and professional context. The experience is designed to be both rigorous and flexible. The activities are asynchronous, meaning you can choose when within a given week you do them. Each week will require five to seven hours of work, with more guided, paced work during the “learning” weeks (weeks 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9) and more job-associated practice and application during the other weeks of the module (weeks 6-7 and 10-12).
By the end of this module, you will be able to:
- Practice intentional self-development
- Identify a high-level leadership goal and make progress toward that goal
- Apply the tools and practices used within this learning community to further your development within the context of your workplace and personal life
