Departmental leadership in Higher Education

Knight, Peter T. and Trowler, Paul R. (2001). Departmental leadership in Higher Education. Buckingham, UK: Society for Research into Higher Education & Open University Press.



This work is primarily aimed at those who have, or will have, a role in leading departments or teams in higher education institutions. It examines the ways in which mainstream leadership thinking does - and does not - apply to departments and teams in HEIs and suggests that departmental leadership is critical to institutional well-being. A series of substantive chapters explores assessment, learning and teaching, research and scholarship, administration and continuing professional development, and the final chapter discusses the ways in which individuals learn how to lead.
