Educational Leadership

As Parker Palmer and Arthur Zajonc write, in The Heart of Higher Education (2011), “sometimes good conversations are ends in themselves, good simply because they are enjoyable and edifying. At other times, something stirs in the participants, and larger forms of dialogue and action begin to take shape” (5). In my teaching, research, and educational leadership, I have strived to create collaborative communities around teaching, learning, and knowledge creation. Connecting people from diverse disciplines and backgrounds – to create new communities and strengthen existing ones – is an underlying objective in all my efforts.
