Leadership for Learning in Higher Education: The Student Perspective
Richards, Debbie
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v40 n1 p84-108 Jan 2012
While leadership has been considered in the higher education (HE) sector, including leadership in learning and teaching (L&T), there is an absence of studies that consider the viewpoint of perhaps the key stakeholder--the student. In this article, the student perspective is gained through an online survey containing questions based on the general leadership literature and the HE literature from the academic viewpoint. The survey seeks to explore how student attitudes compare to those of academics concerning what defines a leader for learning and what competencies and capabilities are considered relevant for L&T leaders by those being led to learn. (Contains 4 figures and 5 tables.)
