Investigating the Theoretical Structure of Deliberative Democratic Leadership

Chun-wen Lin


This paper explores the theoretical framework of teaching deliberative democratic leadership by examining teacher deliberative competency from theories of deliberative democracy. The research described the theoretical framework of deliberative democratic leadership as a heuristic in the practice of teaching deliberative democratic leadership. Through exploratory factor analysis, Teacher Deliberative Competency Scale (TDCS) reduced to 7-factor structure: ethic, inclusion, well-informed, publicity, deliberation, reciprocity and consensus. Results suggest that TDCS provides instructions for teaching deliberative democratic leadership.
