Leading in Learning
“If Learning is our Leading principle within our university it will remain essential to bring people together from across the organization in order to tackle the problems we are facing. One of our deans mentioned at the First Leading in Learning conference that although we have an established learning culture for research (structured in terms of training, peer review, peer visits, peer networks and output metrics), we are more or less still lacking similar structures for education.
Literature shows the importance of evidence (metrics), peer networks, collaboration, managerial support, and trust to realize educational innovation. These basic conditions are now being implemented in our innovation programme Leading in Learning. ”
