We are now recruiting participants for the Developing Leadership and Your Reflective Practice module that will run as a double module as part of the MA Academic Practice from January 2015.
Increasingly work in the HE sector is characterised by continuous change and uncertainty with high expectations and decreasing resources. Consequently, it is vital for staff to develop leadership skills and reflective practice that draws on self-awareness, leadership models and exploration of change. Leadership and being an agent of change are qualities that apply to all roles and grades of work. This module creates a space within which to reflect, network and discover in order to build on your role as a leader of change. Across the six contact days, the participants will take part in visits, action learning sets, reflection, presentation and discussion. Participants will also be offered coaching sessions. While this module will have a theoretical underpinning, the sessions and activities will be driven by the experiences of the participants.
This is the experience of an academic who was a student on the leading change version of this module last year:
“The course was brilliant: it gave me time to step outside the day to day of teaching and research, and to reflect on my career, work style, professional relationships, and the higher education sector more generally. I really enjoyed learning from the case studies of leadership and change in other contexts. The course leaders and other participants were very supportive, and the course became a great space to talk through current and future challenges.”
The module will be lead by Professor Susannah Quinsee, an experienced leader of change, along with Professor Laurence Solkin and Anise Bullimore.
Fees are waived for this module and all other MAAP modules for City staff including visiting lecturers and current City PhD students. We are also recruiting participants for the Research Supervision module. This module is designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to supervise students undertaking masters and doctoral level research projects.
