This interdisciplinary course provides an overview of and immersion in the emerging field of nature-based leadership. In a world in which people are increasingly disconnected from the healthy, generative and renewing ways of nature, this course offers a framework and strategies by which to apply nature’s lessons to enhance your life and career. Nature-based leadership is inherently collaborative. It differs significantly from current mechanistic and hierarchical leadership models and is a way forward to restore a healthy and dynamic balance between people and nature. The course recognizes and builds on contributions from ecology, indigenous wisdom, environmental studies, systems theory, complexity, biomimicry, eco-psychology, conservation psychology, and place-based education.

A significant body of research demonstrates that schools that have strong professional community among staff members have higher levels of student learning and achievement, higher levels of job satisfaction and retention for teachers, and are more able to respond creatively to the inevitable challenges schools face. Based on the tools and practices of School Reform Initiative, Inc. (SRI), this course trains teacher leaders and school administrators to design and facilitate the development of communities of professional practice in their schools. Candidates will consciously choose and use this model of professional development as the primary mechanism for promoting equity, supporting evidence-driven inquiry, professional growth, SRI critical friendship, communication, and accountability. Students in this course will create a professional development plan to promote the use of communities of professional practice in their school setting.
