The Centre for Information Technology in Education (CITE), University of Hong Kong has been commissioned by the Education and Manpower Bureau to conducted a research and development project titled ‘ Evaluating and enhancing the impact of the e-leadership program ' (e-leadership enhancement project, eLEP for short) in June 2005. This project is a follow up project to the eleadership development program conducted by CITE.

The objectives are:

  • to conduct a longitudinal follow up evaluation to find out whether school heads of the e-leadership pilot training have actually implemented their plans in their schools after the pilot training;
  • to find out the kinds of difficulties the school heads encountered;
  • to find out whether the pilot training course has been successful in stimulating changes that have real impact on the schools after the course completion; and
  • to provide support to schools for the implementation of their strategic plans.

The project will comprise two components. The first component is a two-stage survey to find out the overall medium term (one year) impact of the eleadership course on the course participants and their schools. This survey will be administered to all school heads that had participated in the eLeadership program.

The second component is a set of follow-up case studies on 10 case study schools to examine the different strategies adopted by the schools, and the difficulties they encounter in the implementation. School-based professional development support for team leadership in IT will be offered to the 10 case study schools. CITE will be organized as a series of staff development workshops on themes identified to be important by the participating schools.


This Project is commissioned by Education and Manpower Bureau (EMB) and undertaken by The Centre for Information Technology in Education and the Centre for Educational Leadership of the University of Hong Kong.

We are very grateful to the support given by the colleagues from the EMB, principals, teachers and students of our case study schools. Without their active participation and contribution, the project could not be successfully conducted.

We are particularly thankful for the stimulating discussion and expert advice given by our hotseat hosts, and the sponsorship given by Microsoft Hong Kong Limited for our participants in attending various activities.
