Batten Institute “Developing Future Leaders” conference March 26-28

Posted by lbanner on December 28, 2007

The Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia and the Batten Institute for entrepreneurship and innovation will present an interactive learning experience March 26-28, 2008 that will answer key questions about learning and leadership, among them – “Can leadership be taught in college?” and “What are effective and innovative ways to teach leadership?”

Designed for faculty from graduate and undergraduate business schools in the United States, the “Developing Future Leaders” conference will include presentations and workshops that address new developments in business simulations, multimedia cases, the humanities, distance learning, self- assessments, and case method teaching. Faculty who want to expand the leadership dimensions of their management courses, teach or plan to teach leadership courses, or who want to design their own leadership programs will all benefit from the conference’s insights.

The conference keynote address will be delivered Thursday, March 27 by Jim Collins, author of Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap … and Others Don’t and coauthor of Built to Last. Mr. Collins will also facilitate a panel discussion focused on integrating Good to Great principles into the classroom. Limited admission to the keynote address will also be available to the local community.
