Windsor to host international educational leadership forum

A daylong forum leading into the Windsor-Oakland Teaching and Learning Conference will bring together instructors, faculty and staff from institutions across Canada and the United States who have taken on leadership roles on projects enhance teaching and learning.

Participants in the May 12 international Educational Leadership Forum will discuss leadership with others taking on similar challenges, and learn from one another, as well as from experts and seasoned leaders.

Erika Kustra, director of the Centre for Teaching and Learning, says she is really looking forward to this informative and energizing experience.

“We will explore what has helped to make this kind of leadership easier, more successful, more stimulating, and more sustainable at institutions around the world,” she says.

Geoff Scott, co-author of Turnaround Leadership in Higher Education and Learning Leaders in Times of Change, will facilitate the day’s events, drawing on his extensive research into post-secondary leadership. Invited speakers will provide brief, highly engaging portraits of the leadership contexts at their institutions.

The conference itself runs May 13 and 14 on the University of Windsor campus, with a theme of “Leading Change in Teaching and Learning: Vision, Influence, Action.” Find more information on the conference and the forum at
