Social Network Theory and Educational Change

From the foreword: “Readers will find in this volume a persuasive case for the contributions made by social network theory to the study and practical pursuit of educational change, as well as careful attention to the conceptual and methodological challenges entailed in social network analysis. The [fourteen] papers speak to one another in generative and provocative ways, a cross-cutting conversation aided both by the range of theoretical questions they surface and by the sheer variety of the settings they investigate: the large-scale implementation of new curricula, the turn-around challenge in low performing schools; the introduction of instructional coaching as a dominant model of professional development; the formation of leadership cadres in emerging school systems.”
