"\"The contribution presents the aims and organisation of the blended educational activities (in-class and online) of the second. level master’s course in Leadership and Management in Education (“Leadership e Management in Educazione. Direzione e governo. dei processi e delle strutture formative nella scuola dell’autonomia”), offered at the Department of Cultural and Educational Studies of. “Roma Tre” University (Italy). In particular, the work presents the most significant results of the survey and monitoring activities. carried out with specific reference to course participants’ characteristics and motivations, their expectations regarding the usability of. the knowledge and skills gained in the course, and their degree of appreciation of the online and in-class activities. The participants. expected to make use of their new skills in the short and middle run in their own work by performing instrumental functions and. taking on intermediate or active collaboration roles; others felt they could carry on their existing leadership and managerial roles or. functions with greater awareness. The contribution also illustrates the results of an observational study carried out within the. internship period of the course. The study aimed to assess to what extent the 185 teachers taking part felt that certain fundamental. documents of school orientation and governance contribute to characterising and implementing school autonomy practices in Italy.. The teachers were much more critical of their own school than of the one they had observed in the study.\""
