School leadership prompted by data and affect

Project Details


The Ph.D. project scrutinizes the interface between school leadership, data and affect. Focus is on how data contained in The Quality Report 2.0 does not produces knowledge alone in terms of learning outcome and student wellbeing, but also evokes feelings, because leaders make sense of data based on affect. Hoping to further a more complex understanding, the project explores leadership, as something, which is not predominately macro-induced by policy and political agendas, but rather as something, that is indeed also micro-induced by affect. Tapping into this more complex understanding, traditional notions of what matters as leaders act on policies in their everyday practices are reworked.
