509 FOUNDATIONS OF TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP IN NUNAVUT EDUCATION
This course reviews the history and world view of the Inuit, with particular emphasis on culture, educational history, struggles with power and privilege, beliefs, values, and principles relevant to Nunavut. Traditional and contemporary views on leadership are studied as participants develop a deeper understanding of the cultural context in which they live and work as educational leaders. Participants examine the directions and philosophies established in Nunavut, including ties to the environment and practices that facilitate transformational educational leadership.

511 PROACTIVE INSTRUCTIONAL LEADERSHIP IN NUNAVUT COMMUNITIES
The responsibilities, roles, and tasks of principals and other educational leaders are explored as they relate to the creation of a positive, inclusive, collaborative, and culturally responsive school community. The role of leadership in teaching and learning and building positive relationships, both in and outside school, is examined as a key factor in facilitating the academic achievement and well-being of learners. A variety of culturally appropriate facilitation strategies are introduced as participants analyze the legal, moral, ethical and policy rights of learners and educators in maintaining and strengthening culture and language and promoting success in schools, the local community, and the world beyond.
