Cummings, R., Schibeci, R. and Roberts, S. (2008) Future leaders in learning and teaching: Experiences of non-positional leaders in a Carrick Project. In: Teaching and Learning Forum 2008: Preparing for the graduate of 2015, 30 - 31 January 2008, Curtin University, Perth.

Abstract

Murdoch University was awarded a two year leadership grant by the Carrick Institute in July 2006 to establish 9 sub-projects in developing curriculum leaders among staff who do not hold a formal leadership position at the university. The sub-project leaders (known as Curriculum Improvement Leaders) were provided with formal development in a range of leadership areas and funded for a day a week over the two years to generate an improvement project within each of their schools. The sub-projects are varied in terms of focus, process and outcomes, and are at different stages of completion. The overall project has identified a number of issues related to non-positional leadership, institutional sustainability and organisational change. The presentation will be a panel comprising the project leaders giving an overview of the entire project including its aims, structure and outcomes, and the Curriculum Improvement Leaders each providing a brief overview of their sub-project with particular emphasis on leadership development and outcomes.
