Academic attitudes towards becoming educational leaders

CRPL Research Seminar - Speaker - Sue Burkill (University of Exeter)

A School of Education research event
Date13 October 2016
Time17:00 to 18:30
PlaceBaring Court 114

In this seminar I shall draw on my on-going doctoral research into the attitudes of academics towards taking on educational leadership roles. This research has largely been based on a case study of the University of Exeter but I hope ultimately will be of wider value to academics and institutions. In the session I shall:

  • briefly contextualise my research and explain why I believe it has contemporary relevance.
  • explain why I have chosen an applied critical realist research methodology
  • present for discussion some key findings from interviews with early career academics.
  • ask seminar participants to consider and share ideas with me about an attitudinal framework which I  have been developing.
