Educational leadership is not a lofty and noble art for a select few. Regardless of position, everyone has a contribution to make. This workshop will familiarise participants with concepts of leadership in teaching and learning and clarify the role of educational leaders in the university context. It will discuss models of educational leadership and qualities of effective educational leaders and include a grounded collection of practical real-life stories and experiences of colleagues from a variety of disciplines who demonstrate outstanding leadership in teaching and learning. In this context, participants will explore and reflect on their current leadership strengths and needs. Finally, participants will learn about avenues for developing their educational leadership potential and create action plans to leverage the insights gained from the workshop.

Leadership in teaching for GAs, TAs, and Sessional Staff

Registration for this event is now closed.
Schedule: Friday, March 26, 2010, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Location: The Katzman Lounge
Instructors: Nick Baker, Jesse Bauer, Anoop Gupta, Catherine Kuharski, Marian Manavathu, Melanie Santarossa
Leadership can take many forms. For GAs, TAs and sessional instructors, leadership is often displayed in the approach to teaching within their discipline. But what does it take to be a good teacher in this context? What does it mean to be a leader? This workshop explores the theme of leadership at this level. The workshop will be facilitated by a panel of GAs, TAs and sessional instructors who have been recognised as good teachers, innovative practitioners, and leaders in their fields. The workshop provides an opportunity for GAs, TAs and sessional staff to share their own practice, and gain an insight into how others deal with the everyday realities of teaching in these positions.

Ethical Behaviour as Leadership in Education

Registration for this event is now closed.
Schedule: Friday, April 16, 2010, 01:30 PM – 03:30 PM
Location: Erie G137A
In this workshop, participants will be invited to explore ways of modeling ethical practice that are both visible to their students, and practical within an imperfect system of limited resources. Questions addressed in this interactive workshop include: What covert lessons do students draw from our practices? How could we help students develop lives of disciplined integrity even when "integrity" is not what we teach? How can we avoid teaching in ways that make us feel as though we've "sold out"? How can we demonstrate ethical leadership in the light of issues that may arise in class? Please note: this workshop has moved to Room G137A, Lambton Tower Basement.

Exploring Educational Leadership: People, Networks, Practices

Registration for this event is now closed.
Schedule: Monday, February 23, 2015, 01:30 PM – 03:30 PM
Location: Lambton 2103
Instructors: Bev Hamilton, Erika Kustra, Jessica Raffoul

It takes leadership – vision, influence, and action – to improve teaching and learning in your own context and community.  Many educational leaders acquire these skills the hard way – on their own without a supportive network.  Networks and communities of practice can make us more resilient and informed in the face of the many challenges we face as instructors, educational developers, and change agents.

In anticipation of the May 2015 Windsor-Oakland conference, Leading Change in Teaching and Learning, this highly interactive session will explore how you are or can be an educational leader through innovation and best practices in your own classroom and beyond, serving as a model for your colleagues, and bringing about change.
