Leadership and Cooperation in Academia : Leadership and Cooperation in Academia Reflecting on the Roles and Responsibilities of University Faculty and Management

Leadership and Cooperation in Academia : Leadership and Cooperation in Academia Reflecting on the Roles and Responsibilities of University Faculty and Management | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Across the world academic institutions are being questioned by their stakeholders and pressured to change. Answering these questions requires that academics and professional managers in universities think about their work, its value and organisation. The book highlights the need for space and stimulus to reflect on the responsibilities, roles and expectations that they identify for themselves, and that others place upon them – then, they might be better able to understand and to act. Similarly, policymakers and higher education commentators need the space and stimulus to reflect on the role of universities. This book will provide this space and an invaluable contribution to the stimulus.

Daniel Pink also argues that story telling is an important component of 21st century thinking.  Maybe this is one of the reasons it plays a larger role in the common core standards than we might expect?
