ChangeLead is a project recently funded at the University of Oslo by the Norwegian Research Council within the Programme for Research and Innovation in the Educational Sector. The project is led by Professor Ruth Jensen in partnership with Professors Ann Elisabeth Gunnulfsen and Hedvig Abrahamsen, also from University of Oslo, and Professor Kristin Helstad from Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences.
The project creates supportive conditions for upper secondary school leaders to develop a deep understanding of factors contributing to successful leadership of reform work by means of the Change Laboratory.
