The programme leader or director role is a complex and important one, crucial to higher education institutions core business: the delivery of higher programmes of study at under- and post-graduate level. However, it is little researched or clearly defined. There is evident interest in the Programme Leader role across the sector, borne from a growing prevalence of the role and lack of clarity and support for those practicing.
The responsibilities of the programme leader include academic leadership – that is creating a unified and coherent academic programme made up of a collection of modules, and the leadership of academics – supporting peers in meeting their specific responsibilities across the programme. Integral to both is the importance of creating productive and positive inter-personal relationships across a wide array of colleagues: quality and administrative officers, educational developers, academic peers, senior academic leaders and of course students.
The workshop will offer a developmental opportunity for programme leaders and those invested in programme leadership to explore the role in their specific contexts (Jenny Lawrence), consider how to better frame and define the role (Rowena Senior) and look to the various aspects of programme leadership in 2 break out sessions: Academic leadership; Programme level assessment (Ruth Whitfield) & Leading academics; Building effective interpersonal relationships and integrated working (Sarah Moore). Sam Ellis will close with a large group session exploring the development of programme directors' personal efficacy.
