University Leadership and Management Programme - Epigeum
Durham University is part of a consortium of Universities from across the world who form part of an organisation called Epigeum. The consortium develop e-learning resources on leadership and management for Universities.
Six courses make up the programme and they are designed to help leaders and managers, or those aspiring to such roles, face up to and respond in a positive way to the challenges they face.
The programme focuses on practical leadership and management issues:
- how to align objectives and resources
- how to recruit staff
- how to develop a strategic plan
as well as the more indeterminate aspects of leadership and management such as:
- motivating high performing teams
- dealing with difficult situations
- managing conflicting priorities
The programme addresses a number of key issues including how to build a career in higher education leadership and management and how to deal with such a role if it is thrust upon you temporarily.
Each course is authored by a leading academic with many years of experience in leading and managing in the sector. The courses balance practical application with theories and concepts.
The full e-learing programme is available to all staff via DUO. You can self-enrol by accessing DUO (with your existing username and password) you will find the programme in the Current Courses box, in the Training Courses section under Leadership and Management.
