This workshop explores the challenges of leading in Higher Education. With an ever-greater shift towards educating more entrepreneurial and innovative students and practicing academic entrepreneurship, universities need more entrepreneurial leaders.
At this workshop, you will understand what is particular about modern leadership in higher education, not just the general characteristics of good leadership. We will examine the effect of leadership on core activities such as teaching, research and administration. We will investigate how to lead an entrepreneurial organisation and how to develop entrepreneurial cultures. Overall, the emphasis will be on finding practical applications that can help you make a difference in your own organisation.
The workshop has been devised to support academics, researchers, administrators, university-business collaboration staff, and managers and leaders at all levels. It is likely that you already committed to developing your leadership abilities. The workshop will help you to realise your ambitions and increase your ability to be successful.
As a workshop participant, you will receive a workshop certificate, issued by the University Industry Innovation Network and signed by the workshop facilitators.
