  • Our proximal journey 2007-2011• Responding with and within our institutions to the challenges presented by dynamic change in learning and teaching (BFL, open and DE)• Building innovative, resilient, and change- capable staff• Generating change
  • Our 2011 questionWhat do the strategies and activities developed at CSU and Massey (to foster change in BFL, open and DE) help us to understand about learning leadership?
  • Our emerging conceptual space – learning leadership Including: as fostered by distributive leadership Learning Leadership as activity Positional leadership leadershipInformed by Scott, Geoff; Coates, Informed by Parrish, D & Lefoe, GHamish; and Anderson, Michelle, (2008).

  • The 8 case studies we chose to explore the question • CSUEDs (CSU) • ePortfolio (CSU) Macro • The Teaching Fellowship Scheme (CSU) • Course team Symposiums (CSU) • Stream @ the Faculty of Business Meso (MU) • Stream @ Bachelor of Sociology (MU) • FLI Teaching Fellow 1 (CSU) Micro • FLI Teaching Fellow 1 (CSU) What do the strategies and activities developed at CSU and Massey (to foster change in BFL, open and DE) help us to understand about learning leadership?
  • Planned outcomes (2012)• Eight case studies• wikiResearcher http://wikiresearcher.org/DEHub_Research_Projects/Charles_Sturt_University• Methodological development• Final report• Further questions• Ongoing collaboration
  • Generative thinking• Can the research team make sense of the case studies by considering the interplay of positional leadership and leadership as activity (sometimes fostered through distributive leadership)?• No-one in the case studies uses the term “learning leadership”, nor do they use the term “leadership”. We are considering how we might write about the various leaderships shown, using a language that is respectful of this reluctance, yet defines innovation and influence as leadership.
