Educational leadership program utilizes equine assisted learning

As part of superintendent preparation, students from the Executive Educational Leadership program turned to horses last weekend to gain leadership insights. The horses are part of a non-traditional, experiential learning opportunity that supports our graduate students in the development of their self-identity as school system leaders.

Equine assisted learning (EAL) activities have been identified as having a role in leadership development. Research shows that the use of horses for improving management practices is growing because of their ability to help humans practice self-awareness, clarity when communicating, and improve non-verbal cues.
