DESCRIPTION:Jacob Fletcher\nGraduate Teaching Associate\nCentre for Learning and Teaching\nAlthough the act and perception of leadership have changed substantially over time\, many forms are still practiced in higher education. There are both similarities and differences that exist between educational leadership and other traditional leadership roles. Even within education\, teaching as leadership has evolved from an authoritarian style\, to one of collaboration and empowerment. The skills associated with effective leadership apply to the classroom through student-educator relationships based on respect\, credibility\, personality and mentorship. The identification of our own leadership strengths and style is helpful in our development as an educator\, as it enables us to engage in an individualized strength-based educational experience with our students. Additionally\, by identifying our strengths as leaders we can\, in turn\, adapt strategies to become more well-rounded in our teaching.\nThis workshop will help you to identify your leadership styles\, and will discuss effective traits and methods of leadership in the classroom\, while comparing these traits with those prevalent among other leadership roles in society. We will also evaluate leadership tendencies of the past and present\, and discuss the future of leadership in higher education by reflecting on our own successes and challenges.\nRegister\n\nCost: Free\n\nContact Information: Michelle Soucy\nCommunications and Event Planning Officer\nCentre for Learning and Teaching\nTel: (902) 494-6641\nEmail: LOCATION:Halifax: Killam Library\, Room B400\nThis session will not be available via video-conference to Truro.
