This unit supports you in developing your understanding of contemporary innovation and leadership theories and practices in higher education. The focus is on enabling you to refine and apply your understanding in a professional environment, with due consideration of the needs of your teaching and research discipline, institution, colleagues and students. This unit culminates in the creation of a personal learning and teaching 'innovation and leadership' white paper, which elucidates opportunities for future change and organisational development.
