    The following note is that a review of existing literature pertaining to servant leadership and faculty development. Specifically, this work discussed delivering servant leadership to online faculty through the utilization of a faculty development program. The idea for this literature review stemmed from the author asking how an online academic administrator could utilize the practice of servant leadership in order to improve the overall online academic experience. The intent of the review involved discovering, through a review of the literature, a way of opening up a dialogue that can possibly drive future research studies regarding the practice of servant leadership to improve of the overall online academic teaching experience. In this work, the author conducted a literature review that identified strengths in both faculty development as well as practicing servant leadership within the online education modality. The literature identified the issue of faculty isolation as challenge for academic administrators and offered up faculty development as a possible solution to overcoming it. The findings of the work showed a benefit to bringing servant leadership practices into faculty development programs in order to improve the overall online teaching environment. The work generates future empirical research ideas regarding building community, the use of servant leadership, and faculty development programs.

Plays Well With Others: Leadership in Online Collaboration | MIT World - 1 views

  • Amy Bruckman finds the accomplishments of such online collaborations as Wikipedia, Apache and Firefox “nothing less than astounding,” and is both eagerly seeking and hoping to foster the next creative group Internet sensation.

    In her lab’s empirical studies, Bruckman has dissected different types of ensemble internet projects. She describes them as “naturally occurring constructionist learning environments,” where individuals bring “who they are to the process of making meaning,” and receive from their community technical and emotional support. This stuff matters, she says, because “people working together can create mind-bogglingly interesting stuff,” not least because the most inclusive projects reflect the values of all their contributors.

      Rather than highlight every sentence in this interview, I will comment that Sir Ken Robinson's theories are visionary and we should pay attention. His concepts could easily be incorporated into online education.
  • At the moment, instead of promoting creativity, I think we're systematically educating it out of our kids.
  • Most original thinking comes through collaboration and through the stimulation of other people's ideas. Nobody lives in a vacuum.

  • education is becoming so dominated by this culture of standardized testing, by a particular view of intelligence and a narrow curriculum and education system, that we're flattening and stifling some of the basic skills and processes that creative achievement depends on.
    Sir Ken Robinson espouses critical and exciting theories about 21st century education. Worth the read if you are interested in reading about education reform and vision.
