2013 Leadership Academy Registration Now Open

HighEdWeb Leadership AcademyHighEdWeb is pleased to announce that registration for the second HighEdWeb Leadership Academy is now open. Designed to broaden perspectives and advance the leadership abilities of Web professionals working in higher education, this intense program offers interactive learning experiences in a small group setting.

Why attend?

What differentiates this Leadership Academy from other organizations with leadership programs is a specific focus on the job of a Web director/manager. Participants in this academy will learn:

  • The skill set needed to be effective in a broader role within the Web field
  • How to differentiate leading from managing from actually doing the work, so that you can be more intentional in the behavior you select
  • The Web governance framework, from a comprehensive Web strategy to development of policies, standards and an effective evaluation process
  • Different Web team options, including how to work in a matrix environment and affect change
  • The business of higher education

When is the academy?

The academy is being held in conjunction with the annual 2013 HighEdWeb Conference in Buffalo, New York. The Leadership Academy includes two sessions before the conference:

  • Saturday Oct. 5, 2013, 1-4:30 p.m. and 6-8:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
