Examining AMSP Partnerships: Increasing Capacity for Distributed Leadership


This research examines leadership in relation to 10 AMSP Partnership Enhancement Projects. In particular, this study analyzes how leadership is distributed across institutions, people, and resources in relation to partnership outcomes. Methods involve a survey and a structured interview of project leaders, higher education partners, and participating teachers. Preliminary insights from this research suggest that while these partnerships greatly benefited from improved math and science curricula and teacher preparation, perhaps the most significant and sustainable leadership outcomes stem from the relationships, collaborations, and inter-district awareness that develop from partnership networks.
