A new academic leadership position—whether it’s a deanship or a department chair or a provost appointment—brings with it exciting opportunities to move an institutions mission forward and make a real impact on campus life.

Not surprisingly, it also comes with a certain number of headaches that are simply part and parcel of a leadership role.

New Academic Leaders: Strategies for Success is a Magna Online Course designed to help new leaders capitalize on their opportunities as change agents, and manage the challenges that arise in any position involving oversight of faculty.

Over the course of approximately seven hours of instruction, the course ranges both broad and deep across the administrative landscape, addressing critical issues including:

  • Promoting civility and professionalism
  • Identifying historical trends and their impact on current and future administration
  • Crafting feedback appropriate for faculty at all levels, from adjunct to tenured
  • Facilitating change through training, removing obstacles, and aligning systems
  • Creating and carrying out effective mentoring relationships
  • Designing engaging, cost-contained, and impactful faculty-development opportunities
  • Leading, managing, and evaluating online faculty
  • Developing strategies to institutionalize Open Educational Resources (OER)

It’s a detailed, in-depth exploration that will help any new leader make better, more informed decisions on everything from day-to-day concerns to broader strategic issues.

Delivered in module form, the course is designed for convenient learning. It can be taken at any pace, and accessed from virtually any device.
