Does your institution have the necessary leadership to navigate the new higher education landscape? A wide range of internal and external forces are causing great excitement and disruption to business-as-usual in higher education. Market forces, federal and state regulation policies, new and emerging technologies, and the demands of today’s learners for convenience and flexibility are impacting the operational and strategic direction of many institutions. The Institute for Emerging Leadership in Online Learning (IELOL), a blended-learning leadership development program sponsored by Penn State and the Sloan Consortium, is serving to prepare the next generation of institutional leaders in online learning. Since 2009, IELOL has been convening a wide range of individuals identified by their institutional leadership as the next generation of thinkers and decision makers to explore and consider what such a role entails at the personal, local and global level. Working with the IELOL Faculty, a group of senior-level leadership from across the globe, participants are challenged to transition from the operational and management aspects of their careers to becoming the strategic leaders for a new higher education platform consisting of face-to-face, blended and online learning options.
