Volume IV: What works, what matters, what lasts
The PKAL F21 network - A national resource
April 23, 2004
- About the PKAL Faculty for the 21st Century Network
- Perspectives on faculty leaders from 2003 PKAL Assemblies
- The key essay captures insights from the 2003 PKAL assemblies (all chaired by F21 members) about "what works" as faculty take responsibility for tackling specific leadership agendas for their campus community.
- An essay: Asking the right questions
- "The key to quality chemistry education is not teaching the right answers, but teaching how to ask the right questions." A personal story.
- Building a community of leaders: The PKAL F21 Experience
Jeanne L. Narum
- The challenge for leaders -- current and rising -- is to build an environment in which ideas flourish, are shared openly and freely, and where risks are taken, and the possibility of failure is acceptable: a community in which people of good faith have come together around a common vision and sense of purpose
- A letter to F21 leaders
- The educational needs for a "science savvy" citizenry, properly prepared K-12 teachers, and a high-tech workforce can only be addressed if academic leaders with vision rise to the occasion. Leadership requires one to develop a position and take a stand. Make your voices be heard.
- Faculty for the 21st Century Statements
- PKAL F21 members are persistent in thinking about their teaching and about the learning of their students. They are taking the lead in using technology to enhance learning, in building real-world problems into their classrooms, in connecting to communities beyond the campus. Statements and essays from individual F21 members, and comments from their senior administrators, put a personal face on individuals making a difference.
- What makes a difference: Intelligence, creativity, and wisdom
- Drawing on extensive research of his own and colleagues, Robert Sternberg argues that the three key components of leadership are wisdom, intelligence, and creativity.
- Mapping the inventive mind
- Excerpted from a presentation by David Perkins, Professor of Cognitive Science- Harvard University at the National Academy of Sciences, April 23, 2004.
