​The Vice-Rector (Learning and Teaching) cordially invites you to a seminar entitled: Rethinking academic leadership in a managerialist context: the importance of the collegium, the collective, and an ethic of care, on 14 March 2018.  The seminar will be presented by prof Magda Fourie-Malherbe of the Centre for Higher and Adult Education in the Faculty of Education.

Magda Fourie-Malherbe is professor of Higher Education Studies. She holds qualifications from the University of the Free State and Stellenbosch University, and has worked for 30 years at various public higher education institutions in South Africa as a researcher, lecturer, supervisor and higher education manager. Her research includes work on higher education governance, leadership and management, teaching and learning, and transformation.​

The seminar will explore how changing international and national contexts are affecting institutional policies and practices, and argue that, as a result, academic leaders have to give more consideration to protecting the integrity of academic work, involving the collective and adopting an ethic of care.  This line of thought was initially introduced at a 2016 Auxin presentation on academic leadership, and subsequently further developed through, amongst others, the deliberations of the Academic Leadership Focused Interest Group (AL FIG). Potential research projects identified by the AL FIG at the end of 2017 will be suggested for consideration and discussion by the seminar participants.​

Date: Wednesday 14 March 2018

Time: 12:45-13:45

Venue: Room 3008, Education Building, Ryneveld Street​
