Workshop: Academic Leadership Seminar          

Course ID - CTD0622

Short Title: Academic Leadership    

 Audience    Department Chairs, School Directors, Associate Deans
Length of Workshop:       4 Face-to-Face hours and 8 online hours

Participants will be engaged in an ongoing dialog regarding the nature of academic leadership during times of change. One face-to-face session is followed by several weeks of online discussion with an accomplished academic leader who will guide new department chairs and school directors
through a seminar on leadership development that will be based on the actual issues facing the participants. Having a knowledgeable guide during
the first year as a department chairperson/school director should smooth the transition from faculty to chair/director or the entry into a new college
system from the outside. Participants will gain insights from a nationally recognized consultant who has background as Community College
administrator, facilitator, and scholar

Blended delivery: 4 hours face to face and weekly online discussions over 7 weeks.


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Apply management and leadership skills appropriate to situations 
  • Enhance their skills in a professional area of their choice (related to the competencies of a department chair/school director).
  • Understand and apply their strengths as a leader
  • Motivate their staff and faculty

Delivery formats:
- Face-to-Face - All sessions meet in a lab or classroom
Blended -  At least 50 percent of the workshop time will be spent online
Online - No class meetings; all work is done online.
