Catholic Leadership: Inspiring Leaders in a Globalised 21st Century
Date: Tuesday 14 November, 2017 Time: 9.00am-4.00pm Location: Room 7.02, Level 7, The Daniel Mannix Building, Australian Catholic University 8-18 Brunswick St, Fitzroy
Engage with International and National Leaders and Researchers to discuss and debate the nature, practice and formation of contemporary Catholic school leadership to develop a critical and integrated understanding of school leadership in a globalized world.
Australian Catholic school educators have much to learn from the world and the world has much to learn from Australia. While each national context is quite distinct, countries across the English speaking western world are grappling with many similar challenges in relation to Catholic school leadership. ACU is in the process of developing a Global Masters program in Catholic Educational Leadership and to this end has invited a number of likely key players to Australia in November to concretise plans for this new course. This dialogue needs to be informed by Australian Catholic school employing authorities and so we have scheduled a Catholic school leadership symposium that will explore the impact of global and local changes and their implications for learning and leadership in Catholic contexts.
The program will include keynote addresses, panel discussion and a Question and Answer (Q&A) session.
International Speakers include:
Professor Gerald Cattaro, Fordham University, New York, USA
Dr John Lydon, St Mary’s University, Twickenham, London, UK
Professor Eugene Wall, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, Ireland
Associate Professor Barbara Rieckhoff, De Paul University, Chicago, USA
Dr Roisin Coll, University of Glasgow, Scotland
Professor Michael Sampson, St John’s University, New York, USA
Dr Gareth Byrne, Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland
The symposium is being convened by Professor Tania Aspland, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Education and Arts, in conjunction with Professor Geraldine Castleton, Deputy Dean, FEA, Professor Br David Hall, Dean LaSalle Academy, Professor Christopher Branson and Professor Peta Goldburg, FEA.
