Award winning

The 2018 Research Magazine, published by The Australian, recognized A/Prof Eacott as the nation’s field leading researcher in Educational Administration. This recognition was based on the volume of information available online and  The Australian coupling with the data skills of talent discovery and research analytics firm League of Scholars.

Further details on how League of Scholars generates data can be found in this post [click here] on the LSE Blog. In summary though, ““… as more and more detailed, timely, and global data is available from online sources including … League of Scholars, research leaders will be able to gain perspectives and insights into the increasingly fast-moving, mobile world of research and research talent in ways hitherto impossible.”


Educational leadership relationally (2015, Sense), the first book length articulation of the relational approach was awarded the Australian Council for Educational Leaders’ 2015 Hedley Beare Award for the most outstanding education writing.


A/Prof Eacott’s paper Leadership and the social: time, space and the epistemic published in the International Journal of Educational Management was awarded the Most Outstanding Paper in the 2013 volume. This paper explicitly argues that leadership is an epistemic rather than empirical construct and therefore greater attention needs to be paid to the many ways in which a researcher’s pre-existing orientation shapes how leadership is perceived.
