Town Hall: Leadership
Concurrent Session 5
Please join the Strand Chairs as they bring together “the community” of experts and participants to hold an interactive discussion on the main trends and hot topics that are taking root in this strand.
Calling all leaders! Whether you have been in a leadership role for a long time or are an emerging leader, this 45-minute Town Hall session needs your active participation to promote how we approach leadership in our field and how we push on OLC's definition of leadership. We will also examine the implications for the OLC conference, moving forward.
Each of the nine strands for Accelerate will have its own Town Hall session, occurring during concurrent sessions. The Chair of the Leadership Strand, Garvey Pyke, will facilitate and the Leadership Town Hall, including a panel discussion that involves audience participation. The panel will be comprised of presenters from the Leadership Strand, including the Best-In-Strand award winner(s).
- Look at the common themes from this year’s presentations, to see the direction our field is heading and what the leadership challenges are in that journey.
- What is being overlooked with regards to leadership, in terms of policy, practice, and philosophy? Where are the leadership gaps in organizational culture?
- Examine the current strand description, to see what is missing and to crowdsource a possible new description for OLC Accelerate 2017.
We will hit the hot topics to engage the attendees. The goal is that you will be energized with ideas for actions you would like to take once you get back to your own institutions and also generate ideas for your own conference proposals regarding leadership.
