This is the inaugural webcast in the Commission for Student Involvement E-Series. This webcast is about the key conversations from the 2012 National Leadership Symposium.
This past year, the focus of the Symposium was on the rigorous design, engaging experiences, and demonstrated results necessary for quality leadership education in our contemporary society. Participants and presenters engaged in a shared reading which served as a collective thread across each session: A New Culture of Learning: Cultivating the Imagination for a World of Constant Change (Thomas & Brown, 2011). Focused on creating frameworks for quality education of students in today’s digital age, the book provided a springboard from which ideas were shared in translating the material to college leadership education.
Webinar participants will hear from the coordinators of this year’s Symposium: David Rosch, an Assistant Professor of Leadership Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and Marilyn Bugenhagen, an Associate Professor of Leadership at Marian University, as they review some of the highlights and key concepts discussed this past summer.
