Contemporary challenges facing educational leadership and launch of new Master of Educational Leadership
6:30pm – 8:30pm (Melbourne time zone)
Online live stream only


Educational leadership is incredibly complex work. Across the globe, we are seeing more challenges in attracting leaders to the profession, and higher rates of stress and burnout in those people who do take up a leadership role. We know leaders are innovative, respond creatively to the challenges facing education and society today, and we have much to learn from them.

Monash has a long history of research expertise in the area. We think that educational leadership policies and practices need to be reimagined to better support the people undertaking these vital roles.

In this session, we showcase the important work being undertaken by leaders around the world. We present a range of perspectives on the different aspects of leadership and bring together ideas to propose ways leadership needs to be reimagined, and share possibilities for rethinking the work of educational leaders. It will include short presentations by three speakers who will then answer some key questions as a panel, all of which will reflect upon the messages and themes and consider what the research means for the future directions of policy and practice in schools across Australia.

In addition, we invite you to celebrate the launch of our new Master of Educational Leadership course. Hear from our course leader, Dr Amanda Heffernan, and take the opportunity to ask questions about this new course.

Please note the University's position and response to the COVID-19 situation: Novel Coronavirus fact sheet.
