Leadership Academy

HighEdWeb debuts a Leadership Academy this October, designed to help develop the skills of those responsible for directing Web operations at their college or university via interactive learning experiences in a small group setting.

Academy participants will learn:

  1. What is leadership, the importance of leadership for Web professionals, and how to develop leadership skills.
  2. How to communicate effectively with campus administrators and stakeholders.
  3. How to articulate the value of the Web to obtain the appropriate staff and resources.
  4. An understanding of higher education organization and administration, and the implications for the Web.
  5. Resource management, project prioritization, and budget.
  6. How to manage people, including the ideal composition of a Web team, hiring practices, evaluating performance, conflict resolution and mediation.
  7. How to implement a Web governance structure including a Web governance framework, a comprehensive Web strategy, development of policies and standards, and development of an effective evaluation process.

The Leadership Academy will be held on October 7 and 10, in conjunction with the 2012 HighEdWeb Annual Conference.  Enrollment is limited to 24 seats, so register early!
