There have been fundamental changes in education in Hong Kong and the Asia-Pacific over the last two decades. What paradigm shifts have been evident in school leadership locally and internationally? How can leadership be effective in initiating school reforms and education innovations for new learning? These questions are crucial to the future development of students and the society. Integrating his major research findings and theory advances in the past twenty years and taking Hong Kong as a critical case, Professor Cheng’s public lecture aims to elaborate the key features, rationales and implications of paradigm shifts in school leadership for learning in contexts of globalization and local developments in the Region. The lecture also illustrates why a new paradigm of the third-wave leadership will be a major international trend of research, development, and practice of school leadership for new learning in the coming ten years.
