Leading in higher education is typically driven by a vision. But visions can be hard to adhere to in the midst of a pandemic. The future seems profoundly uncertain and at times planning seems impossible. Shifting local and national restrictions are drawing our focus to the immediate and urgent demands of managing learning and teaching, and the wellbeing and productivity of our staff and students. Yet we are forced to cast our eyes forward to consider unknown challenges and imagine possible futures. What are our options? What are the opportunities? What are the implications of what we decide? And on what basis must we bravely move ahead?
This conference explores the ways in which higher education is grappling with horizons, both near and far. In particular, it builds a conversation about leading from different vantage points and positions in the sector and our organisations.
Associate Professor Agnes Bosanquet (Macquarie University) is presenting ‘Snapshots of Practice – A community of practice for teaching and leadership’.
