REFLECTIONS ON CHANGE LEADERSHIP IN A FAITH BASED TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM Tension arises within me when I think about change leadership.

However, very often and very importantly leadership is about sustaining what is already present and good (Hargreaves & Fink, 2006).

A recent document, Bringing Life to Learning (Council of Ontario Universities, 2014), states experiential learning sets students up for success in the workplace. Implementing such an approach may require challenging students to go beyond the traditional cookie-cutter approach to success in the classroom towards becoming reflective practitioners who examine their practice through a critical lens (Enns, 2006). My vision for faculty is that they collaboratively engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning in which they critically examine student learning through the lens of student learning outcomes (Hutchings, Huber, & Ciccone, 2011).
