A Theory-to-Practice Leadership Learning Arrangement in a University Context
Franken, Margaret; Branson, Christopher; Penney, Dawn
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v21 n4 p491-505 2018
Higher education institutions are increasingly recognizing the importance of organizational change as they face complex challenges. Leadership learning has been identified as an important way of supporting change management. We describe a leadership learning arrangement that arose in the context of two of the authors needing to learn how to become effective university chairpersons of departments. This involved the other author, an expert in educational leadership as a theory broker, who brought theory to the learning arrangement and mediated it. We wish to show how the learning arrangement supports the theory-to-practice connection and personal authoring of leadership for all involved.
