Educational Leadership: Capturing Global Knowledge

Exchange platform for the CELL project

As partners from Australia, Azerbaijan, Mongolia and Switzerland, we are a multinational professional network designing online learning experiences through case studies that merge international educational development and educational leadership.

We offer innovative locally-based teaching case studies on school leader responsibilities and challenges in this pivotal moment of educational transformation.

Most educational leaders around the world have not been formerly prepared for their role, and even those who have, have rarely had the opportunity to reflect on and learn from the application of leadership practices in diverse country contexts. These case studies are designed for future as well as experienced educators, leaders and policy makers.  They can be used in a classroom setting or as self-directed learning opportunities!


Document Archive

Here users can find national and local education policies, reports and scholarly publications related to each teaching case study.

Case Studies

This space contains case studies based on educational leadership trends in each country context. Each case study includes an introduction to the issue or topic, critical thinking questions, learning objectives and potential classroom or individual activities.


This is a member-only discussion space where you can ask questions, share your ideas and experiences. Please contact us and join the conversation


Scenario 1: Guide for teachers in a classroom context
  1. Introduce the topic (context, challenge or problem), the country context, and the main actor(s).  Overall critical thinking questions can be used as a warm-up and referred to throughout the learning process.
  2. State the learning objectives.  Each case study aims at covering approximately two learning objectives. These can vary from gaining insight into leadership practices in different national country contexts to applying best practices or policies in one’s own leadership environment.
  3. Select material from the document archive that fits your learning objectives. Make sure to consider time and resources. Based on the material you choose, develop a “roadmap” for your class. Ideally it will include warm-up activities or questions, activities/tasks dealing with the material, wrap-up activities or questions as well as transitions for each stage.  It is more important to formulate questions that trigger discussions than to lecture or to go through every detail in the material provided.
  4. To connect your students with other learners or to share your comments, suggestions or reflections on the case studies, go to DISCUSSION SPACE.  This is a space where everyone can share their ideas, experiences, challenges and successes with international colleagues.
Scenario 2: Guide for self-directed learners
  1. Familiarize yourself with the topic, the country context and the material provided in the document archive.
  2. Reflect on your own experiences of leadership. What type of leader are you?
  3. Choose a case study of your interest and think about what learning outcome you would like to achieve.
  4. Based on your own goals, choose among the different activities, questions and material provided in each case study.
  5. To discuss your ideas and questions with other learners, join the DISCUSSION SPACE. This is a space where everyone can share their ideas, experiences, challenges and successes with international colleagues.
