Looking, Learning, and Leading: On the Next-Generation Leadership Academy
The goals for higher education today are already big, and growing. From deeper learning to increased relevance and employability to improved access, success, and equity outcomes for striving students, there are not many institutions, regions, states, or nations setting the education bar low. As policy, practice, tool, and technology innovation against these outcomes continues, what is also growing is the need for the continuing development of skill sets in educators—at all levels—to help lead education forward. Civitas Learning developed the Next Generation Leadership Academy to help its partners build out the skill sets of looking, learning, and leading in their institutions. One of their Pioneer Partners, Lone Star College, helped pilot the program and they are already seeing powerful outcomes. Representatives from Civitas Learning and Lone Star College share lessons learned as this interesting next-generation leadership work takes shape.
