Summary
  • Language Program Leadership in a Changing World: An Ecological Model presents a comprehensive view of management and leadership in language programs as situated in a complex, globalized context with rapidly changing characteristics. The language program is described as an extensive ecology made up of many different types of interacting parts, which leaders of these programs must manage and balance with strong attention to context and the future. The discussion emphasizes the complexity of the job of leading a language program and the many types of roles that a leader must fill in monitoring it. --
  • Both practical and theoretical in nature, the book provides case studies and overviews of administrative issues such as financial, data, and people management. It is written for language program leaders, faculty, and college/university administrators with an interest in international exchange and the provision of language support for international students and faculty. Such provision is contextualized from the different perspectives of instruction, academic discipline, profession, service, and business. The entire discussion is placed in a global context of changing conditions and priorities for education and language study. --Book Jacket
