Master academic leadership with scientific evidence-based approach! Our next Online Academic Leadership Course starts in March. Enroll now: https://www.informatics-europe.org/events/academic-leadership-online-course.html

Dear colleagues,

All academics are destined to be leaders. Mastering academic leadership involves bringing out the best in people, navigating tough conversations, and fostering an environment where you and your colleagues not only survive but thrive. Are you ready to tackle these challenges?

Designed by and for computer scientists, our courses aim to support you through all levels of formal and informal academic leadership:

  • Online Course: the opportunity for an extended period of reflective practice, from March to June 2024, featuring seven 2-hour online sessions with individual in-between work and consultation possibilities.
  • Bespoke Course: to enhance team cohesion and foster a shared culture to thrive! Customized solutions for colleagues from the same institution, available anytime, anywhere with mutual agreement.

Leaders from over 20 countries have already benefited from our courses! That’s what some of them say:

"It really changed the way I think about my work. It cannot be said enough: this course was the best course I have ever taken."

“I enjoyed the discussions and the interactions with the facilitators and other course participants: valuable reflections and innovative perspectives!"

“The "theory" and discussions departed from participants' own experiences, problems, and concerns, and so felt extremely relevant and applicable. My colleagues and I are really happy with the course. Others are planning to join next year.”

(See further testimonials here.)

Both leadership courses will be facilitated by Prof. Geraldine Fitzpatrick and Prof. Austen Rainer, experienced informatics academics, offering scientific evidence-based approaches to positive leadership practice. Don’t miss out – register now for early bird offers!

We look forward to supporting you in effectively leading and managing changes within academic environments.

Best regards,

Informatics Europe
