On Being "Head": Reflections on Leading an Educational Innovation Involving Computer Technology.
Albury, Rebecca
The demand for innovative educational development is also a demand for new approaches to leadership in higher education. The assumption that the adoption of an institutional policy that encourages the use of learning technologies is all that is necessary for the successful implementation of the policy obscures the role of middle level leadership. During the late 1990s the University of Wollongong began preparing to offer several degrees at regional centers by flexible delivery methods. The paper explores the B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) development project in a heuristic way, using two models from the literature on leadership for change in both corporate and university settings to explain first what had to be done in order to be successful, and then what the author, as the leader, did to enable that success.
