Departmental Leadership in Higher Education.
Knight, Peter T.; Trowler, Paul R.

The chapters are: (1) "Changing"; (2) "Leadership Theory, Leadership Practice"; (3) "Leading in Higher Education Departments"; (4) "Learning from Other Places"; (5) "Leading and Assessment"; (6) "Leading Learning and Teaching"; (7) "Leading Research and Scholarship"; (8) "Administration and Positioning"; (9) "Continuing Professional Development"; and (10) "Learning To Lead."
