The 2013 Leadership Can Be Taught Symposium is an opportunity for undergraduate and emerging professional educators to come together to explore best practices in adapting the Leadership Can Be Taught framework* into higher education. This year’s symposium will demonstrate the power of partnership, moving from the idea of “us versus them” to the power of creating “we”. This three-day event will be a partnership with the University of San Diego Leadership Department and the University of Minnesota Undergraduate Leadership Minor with sessions displaying the fusion of the two programs.
*Participants are strongly encouraged to read Leadership Can Be Taught: A Bold Approach for a Complex World by Sharon Daloz Parks, have a general knowledge of Heifez’s Adaptive Leadership framework and complete the pre-conference readings (to be sent) before attending.
Call for Proposal is now closed.
The 2013 Leadership Can Be Taught Symposium seeks proposal submissions that illustrate various academic and professional uses of the Leadership Can Be Taught framework (Daloz-Parks, 2005)(Adaptive Case-in-Point Teaching) from a range of leadership scholars, educators, coordinators, directors, consultants, and other leaders and leadership professionals using this type of teaching.
The round table format allows presenters and participants an opportunity to share in conversation while exploring a topic of importance. Presenters are accountable for insight on the subject and facilitating the discussion with individuals who choose to participate in the particular section. Participants have an opportunity to move to other tables, but presenters will remain at their established table. All Roundtable discussions will take place on Friday June 28th, in the mid-morning. Your presentation should be about 8 to 10 minutes, and will be followed by interactive conversation.
Proposal Criteria and Requirements
A blind review process will be used to select round table presenters. The selected presenters will be required to:
- Present their topics in person at the roundtable session;
- Register for the conference;
- Show experience in experimenting with Case-In-Point Teaching and/or Adaptive Leadership in context to leadership and undergraduate contexts;
- Adhere to submission requirements (see below).
Please submit a two-page proposal by the deadline of Friday May 10th, 2013. Late submissions may not be considered.
On the first page, please list your: name(s), title(s), institutional affiliation(s), contact information (telephone number and email address) and a biography for each presenter (this will be used in the program guide, if chosen to present). The second page should NOT include your name or any other identifying information.
