The course aims to give postgraduate students who have demonstrated or shown potential as leaders a wide understanding of styles of leadership and influence. In line with the interdisciplinary and peer-learning ethos of Vice-Chancellor courses, students will be exposed to the varying perspectives on leadership and influence.
The wide range of leadership activities that students enrolling in Vice-Chancellor courses have been involved in has been extraordinary. VCPG6003 will aim to bring postgraduate students together and use peer-learning strategies to allow students to share their varying experiences and perspectives on leadership. VCPG6003 will target:
1. postgraduate students interested in exploring various models and styles of leadership, and
2. students who have already demonstrated leadership or leadership potential.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Evaluate and understand the application of different disciplinary and cultural models of leadership and influence.
- Demonstrate high level skills in working in teams; facilitate learning and provide developmental feedback to others.
- Communicate effectively and persuasively in oral and written forms and be able to quickly sum up key issues emerging from discussions/meetings.
- Formulate a clear personal set of values about leadership and models of leadership.
- Demonstrate and apply knowledge learnt to understand and engage a senior or influential leader.
