Journal of Educational Leadership in Action


Logic modeling supports project and program development and implementation through specific design, planning, communication, evaluation and learning considerations and are typically used for the purposes of explanation, resolutions and assessment. Logic modeling was used in one teacher training program in the U.S. experiencing substantial leadership change. Leading change requires the facets of both leadership and management. This paper will discuss leading change through strategic management; logic modeling as a way of supporting program development and evaluation; share two forms of logic modeling (Theory of Change and Program) used to put into focus one teacher preparation program; discuss the methodology used in the development of both models employing participation from impacted stakeholders; and share the results as it relates to the logic models developed, how they are currently being used to communicate with stakeholders, and how the models will be used in program evaluation. Finally, the impact of this process will be discussed for future educator preparation programs as they navigate current challenges in pre-service educator preparation, program development, and evaluation.
