Educational leadership in a pandemic crisis
It is significant that this Neil Cranston address for the Leadership SIG series is one focusing on leadership in the context of a pandemic crisis. Political, scientific, Indigenous and educational leadership has been foregrounded with Covid-19. Even though policy reversals have been swift and interventionist promising something different, what lessons have been learnt about the relationship between the state, universities and scientific expertise and leadership? Drawing from my future book Disrupting Leadership in the Entrepeneurial university, I discuss how competing managerial, techno-bureaucratic and collegial logics of practice, techno-bureaucratic have informed leadership practices and how Covid has foregrounded intellectual-scientific leadership. What does the pandemic restructuring of the sector hold for post-pandemic university futures and educational research?
