Dr. Scott’s research interests include capacity building for individual and organizational effectiveness; leadership development; the use of ICT to support ongoing reflection and learning for leaders, educators, and students; instructional strategies; and student assessment. Shelley is a member of the International Study of Principal Preparation (ISPP) - an international scholarly collective aimed at exploring the effectiveness of principals’ leadership development. Drs. Shelley and Don Scott established the International Study of Leadership Development in Higher Education (ISLDHE) which encompasses scholar-partners in Australia, Canada, England, Fiji, and New Zealand.
