CON03.08 - (Teaching) Fellowship of the Ring: A Journey of Common Purpose to Lead Educational Change

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The deliverables of education are under significant scrutiny in today’s educational and career market. Educational leadership has emerged at institutions of higher education to help shape the nature and delivery of educational experiences with the goal of supporting and expanding distributed leadership for teaching and learning among peers and across the institution. The objective of this workshop is to share experiences of embedded educational development; specifically, the evolution of leadership identities that draw on the qualities, characteristics and social capital of highly effective and prominent teachers. Teaching fellows representing three separate and uniquely positioned institutions in southwestern Ontario will share their experiences with embedded educational leadership and its impact on student experience and resonance with instructional colleagues.

Participants will engage in conversational leadership in a world café™ setting to network among one another and harvest from the collective effort, a sense of engagement with educational change and a means by which to envision change at their own institutions. Pressing trigger questions such as (1) what are our educational crossroads today; (2) How can educational leadership help innovate education; and (3) does educational leadership influence academic institution administration will be explored. The workshop is intended to foster the development of a relationship between educational leaders, instructors and students, creating opportunities for the exploration and distribution of knowledge that will help build and promote a shared vision of education and learning.
