22 SES 11 JS, Leadership in Higher Education
Paper Session, Joint Session NW 22 and NW 26
This paper explores the paradigm shift that is taking place in higher education where the focus of the university is moving away from academic elitism towards a focus on a business model which is market-led and student driven and in working and engaging with industry and public services.
This change requires a new type of university leadership where skills and experience in practice-based knowledge production, contract management, relationship building and partnership management are needed.
Using the results of research studies undertaken on academic leaders in practice disciplines in universities in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States, arguments will be presented as to why academic leaders of practice disciplines are well-placed to take a university-wide leadership role in the changing university.
