Name: Challenges to Maintaining the Human Touch in Educational Leadership

Language: English (en)
Summary: This chapter addresses three challenging questions educational leaders are facing today in our technology-driven environment. As our programs include more and more virtual learning and less and less face-to-face learning, the challenge to maintain the human touch in our profession is increasingly at risk. These questions we should be intentionally addressing include the following: (a) How do we identify appropriate responses to technology advances in our programs? (b) How do we establish covenant communities in our diverse classrooms and beyond? and (c) How do we nurture professional relationships as educational leaders? Dialogue focused on these questions will result in strengthening educational leadership programs at every level.
