The Ohio State University
Columbus, Ohio, USA
December 9 – 11, 2012
Leadership education of college and university students is an important and ongoing process within higher education institutions. Student affairs professionals play an essential role in coordinating, shaping, and evaluating this area by developing leadership courses and programs, creating co-curricular opportunities, and using new technologies. The Leadership Educators Institute (LEI) is an innovative forum geared specifically towards new to mid-level student affairs professionals and leadership educators with these responsibilities. The Institute is coordinated by NASPA, ACPA, and the National Clearinghouse for Leadership Programs, and will be held December 9 –11, 2012, at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.
Submit a 75-minute educational program proposal for the Institute. Submission deadline is July 19, 2012. Submit your proposal at www.naspa.org/programs/lei. Accepted proposals will offer only the highest quality information focused on the following topic areas:
The Institute Planning Committee encourages program proposals that are proven practices with content that will intentionally engage participants in discussions and provide meaningful content to bring back to their campuses. Content should be geared specifically towards new to mid-level student affairs educators.
Pre-institute Workshop 1: Student Leadership in Higher Education: Lost in the Leadership Forest?
This pre-institute workshop is designed for participants new to the area of college student leadership. Based on feedback from past evaluations, this session was created to provide a nuts-and-bolts understanding of the many theories, concepts, and language of leadership. The presenters (esteemed scholars and representatives from ACPA, NASPA, and NCLP) will provide this foundation to help introduce participants to college student leadership education and to help successfully navigate a first LEI experience.
Pre-institute Workshop 2: Creating Appropriate Developmental Sequencing in Leadership Education
Although leadership educators are often aware of students’ varying levels of cognitive and psycho-social development, comprehensive leadership programs do not always reflect this variation. Emerging research highlights the need to create leadership education programs that are developmentally sequenced, leveraging high-impact practices to provide students with increasingly complex content. In this session, we will discuss recent findings from the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership to provide a deeper understanding of appropriate developmental sequencing and showcase practical examples based on developmental readiness.
Pre-institute Workshop 3: StrengthsQuest at Ohio State University
Join us for an overview, discussion, and activities around StrengthsQuest and its application at Ohio State University. Presenters will share perspectives for using Strengths within academic coursework, student advising, student employment/peer leaders, and co-curricular leadership programs. Attendees will gain an understanding of one approach toward becoming a strengths-based campus, and how to apply this process to their own campus. Participants do not need to have taken the StrengthsQuest assessment in advance of this session.
