Norwegian Kindergarten Research Conference 2022
In the last decade, there's been increasing attention to leadership as an important aspect of kindergarten institutions. Strengthening leadership competence is a central tool to secure quality in kindergarten. Research regarding various aspects of kindergarten leadership is also in growth. Therefore, the Norwegian Kindergarten Research Conference 2022 has leadership in the kindergarten context as the central theme.
The conference will build on a broad approach to studies of leadership practices, leadership in general and the framework for leadership & development in the kindergarten organisation. We invite a broad spectre of contributions with different theoretical and empirical focuses and methodological approaches.
Relevant themes will include policy and political-administrative management targeting organisation and leadership in kindergarten, kindergarten as a learning organisation, development leadership, and cooperation on profession-development, moral and ethical aspects of kindergarten management, pedological leadership, knowledgebase leadership, formal roles, rational and distributed leadership, work distribution and professionalization, and leadership & kindergarten quality.
