CIL Friday Leadership Research Forum: "Catalysts for Creating the Future of the Academy: UMN Case Studies on Shared Leadership"
The Center for Integrative Leadership presents, "Catalysts for Creating the Future of the Academy: UMN Case Studies on Shared Leadership" with presenter Ann Hill Duin
Globalization, immersive research and learning environments, unlimited access to information and analytics, and fiscal realities continue to impact higher education -- and higher education IT. Although IT organizations face immense pressure to meet significantly greater expectations at significantly less cost, with such pressure comes the opportunity to move IT beyond managing commodity resources to serving as a strategic and catalytic force for transforming higher education. To do so, however, demands an evolution from distributed to highly coordinated leadership as well as fostering the institutional conditions for enabling strategic shared leadership. In this research forum, Dr. Ann Hill Duin will challenge all those engaged in higher education to think even more boldly about integrative leadership.
Dr. Ann Hill Duin is a professor in the Department of Writing Studies in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota. Ann's research focuses on the social construction of knowledge and the impact of digital technologies on communication. Ann has taught and conducted research across K-12, undergraduate, graduate, and corporate levels in the U.S. and abroad.
This event will be held Friday, March 23, 2012 from 11:30 am -1:00 pm in
Room 144 Science Teaching and Student Services Building.
