I'm using it with a few teachers I am partnering with and it is working wonderfully. Using the district feature with feedback, etc. A great, growing, and constantly improving tool.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 8, 2013 9:35 PM

Basically, feedback is information about how we are doing in our efforts to reach a goal. I hit a tennis ball with the goal of keeping it in the court, and I see where it lands—in or out. I tell a joke with the goal of making people laugh, and I observe the audience's reaction—they laugh loudly or barely snicker. I teach a lesson with the goal of engaging students, and I see that some students have their eyes riveted on me while others are nodding off.

Here are some other examples of feedback:


  • A friend tells me, "You know, when you put it that way and speak in that softer tone of voice, it makes me feel better."
  • A reader comments on my short story, "The first few paragraphs kept my full attention. The scene painted was vivid and interesting. But then the dialogue became hard to follow; as a reader, I was confused about who was talking, and the sequence of actions was puzzling, so I became less engaged."
  • A baseball coach tells me, "Each time you swung and missed, you raised your head as you swung so you didn't really have your eye on the ball. On the one you hit hard, you kept your head down and saw the ball."

Strategic Leadership in the Business School; Keeping One Step Ahead

Strategic Leadership in the Business School; Keeping One Step Ahead | SCHOOL LEADERSHIP IN A MODERN ERA | Scoop.it

Business schools have come under fire in recent years with criticisms centring on their academic rigour and the relevance of business education to the 'real' world of management. Alongside this ongoing debate, increasing international competition and media rankings have led to a fierce struggle between business schools for positioning and differentiation. These are among the challenges that are faced by the Dean of the modern-day business school. In this book, Fernando Fragueiro and Howard Thomas show how Deans of business schools can meet such challenges in terms of strategic direction setting and the execution of their leadership role. Drawing on their invaluable experience as Deans of highly successful business schools, they present a series of case studies to show how leaders of five leading business schools (IMD, LBS, INSEAD, IAE and Warwick) have built effective strategies in the context of internal and external political pressures.

 

Table of Contents

1. Introduction: global financial crisis: future challenges for strategic leadership, Deans and business schools

2. The business school landscape: trends and dilemmas

3. Business schools as professional organisations (professional service firms)

4. The leadership process in business schools

5. Strategic leadership in practice: leading the strategic process in three top business schools

6. Strategic leadership in practice: the role of the Dean

7. Learning from the trenches: personal reflections on Deanship
