By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The Current Ecosystem of Learning Management Systems in Higher Education
Eden Dahlstrom, D. Christopher Brooks, Jacqueline Bichsel, EDUCAUSE, 2014/10/01

Manager n'est pas materner

http://leblogrh.recruteurs.apec.fr/wp-content/uploads/PMarzin.jpgPar Pierre Marzin. La difficile mission du manager est de veiller à trouver l'équilibre entre le développement de son équipe, l'atteinte de ses objectifs et la fuite du maternage.
La posture du manager n'est pas toujours facile. Il doit mener son équipe à l'atteinte des objectifs qu'il aura veillé à définir comme smart (spécifique, mesurable, accepté, réalisable, temporellement défini). Dans le même temps, il lui est demandé d'accompagner son équipe dans le développement de ses compétences, en lui transmettant son expérience ou en lui donnant la possibilité de se former, par exemple. Il doit la féliciter et éventuellement la récompenser quand les objectifs sont atteints. Suite...

Academics Anonymous: an open letter to university 'leaders'

The Guardian homeBy Stop mistaking change for progress, and start trusting the people who work for you.
Dear leaders,
I address you as "leaders" because, for some reason (perhaps manager comes too close to rhyming with janitor for your liking), you've increasingly taken to styling yourselves in this way. How grand. How imposing. How spurious.
Leaders are followed. The capacity and willingness to drive people along with the use of the pitchfork of threatened redundancy or the flaming torch of disciplinary action does not make a leader and the mere fact that you so brazenly call yourselves leaders is evidence of the malaise that prompts me to write.
For the record, if you're not Alexander, Napoleon, Monty or the modern equivalent you're not really a leader. Be neither managers nor leaders. Be provosts, masters, principals, vice-chancellors, rectors, deans, registrars, bursars. How quaint. How medieval. How refreshing. Read more...
