UCEA 2016

Hosted in Detroit Michigan at the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center, this year’s theme “Revitalizing Education in Complex Contexts: Re-envisioning Leadership, Refreshing Practice, Redefining Student Success”is intended as an occasion to talk, meet, think, and organize for a renewed vision, goal-setting and coalition-building that will bring new life and meaning to the role of education and educational leadership. The theme highlights the context of of the convention location in Detroit, a city that has faced significant challenges and undergone tremendous change, with a lens on the educational, political, civic, corporate, and community revitalization that occurs in such contexts. As such, the theme draws attention the complex contexts (communities, political environments, and policy contexts) in which we research, lead and practice in the field. Such contexts are complex due to the multidimensional and sometimes competing interests inherent in these various spaces, and because they involve interconnections and intersections among various people, challenges, changes, and politics which often directly impact and influence education policy, leadership practice, and student outcomes.

 

To address the 2016 UCEA Convention theme, Revitalizing Education in Complex Contexts: Re-envisioning Leadership, Refreshing Practice, Redefining Student Success,” UCEA invites submissions that: (1) challenge traditional conceptions of educational leadership and leadership development in complex settings; (2) propose a paradigm for revitalizing, re-envisioning, reframing or redefining: education, educational leadership, educational systems and educational policies, (3) examine how we prepare school and district leaders to support equity, quality and community in complex educational contexts; (4) explore the myriad ways of defining student success in the current and evolving education policy landscape; and (5) support advocacy work directed at policy makers and elected officials.
