The Educational Leadership SIG was launched at the AGM on 19 November 2015.

The NZARE SIG aims to provide a forum in which researchers can engage in stimulating discussion and critical thinking with respect to the diverse nature of educational leadership.


It is important that as educational leaders we stay current and knowledgeable about the latest ideas and thinking.  The Educational Leadership SIG will provide a forum to give members with similar professional specialities the opportunity to exchange ideas and keep themselves informed about current and discrete developments in this field.  The activities of this SIG, planned by our members and elected officers will provide a clear indication of the diverse interests and needs of the Educational Leadership SIG members.  As a SIG we want to not only share but promote particular issues or points of views.  As an exclusive professional community within NZARE this SIG will offer members a number of exclusive benefits.  This SIG will advocate for educational leaders across all settings, and promote the development and dissemination of applied research in educational leadership practice and policy.

Research Interests:

  • Educational Leadership Theories
  • Educational Leadership Practice
  • Educational Leadership Policy
  • Indigenous Educational Leadership
