Abstract [en]

The relationship between students learning and teachers professional learning are central in school systems. Teachers professionalism has got a big impact on students outcome. According to international research the professional learning is central and crucial for school leaders in their task to develop schools. How do school leaders think about organizing for teachers professional learning at their schools? According to them, what has got the greatest impact? And in what way do the leadership effect the students results?

I will immerse myself into what research says about organizing for teachers professional learning. I have interviewed six principals to listen to their approaches and experiences about this theme.

Research says that schools are complex organizations and as a school leader it is not realistic that you are the leader of all processes yourself. At the same time you are the pedagogical leader at your school. The only way to improve the results in schools is to change what is happening in the classroom, the education. Something that is very easy to say but difficult to get systemized and sustainable. As a school leader you have an indirect influence on this. Leadership is essential together with knowledge of learning theories, goalsetting and organization.

Research says that as a school leader you are likely to be more successful if you adjust your leadership due to the situation. School leaders need to create conditions for teachers to learn together on the base of students results. What motivates teachers to continue adjust their education is changes in students results. The role as a school leader is complex and the leadership that are shared and distributed is more likely to be successful.
