CHEER Seminar for the International EdD Summer School Monday 2nd July, 2.00 - 4.30pm Room 255, Bramber House Speaker Professor Bruce Macfarlane, University of Hong Kong & Visiting Professor to CHEER, University of Sussex presents: Intellectual Leadership in Higher Education: Renewing the Role of the University Professor ____________________________________ The literature on leadership in higher education is predominantly concerned with the role of formally designated senior managers, such as heads of department and deans of faculty. By contrast, relatively little attention has focused on those performing informal and distributed forms of leadership, such as (full) university professors. Professors often feel that there is a mismatch between their priorities and those of their employing institutions, and that their expertise is under-utilised. It is argued that new managerialism and performative expectations are reshaping the role of the professoriate – and that institutions need to do more to develop their leadership capacity. This is an open seminar. All welcome.
