We understand advancement shops in higher ed. That's why we've tailored the CASE Management Institute to address the needs of new managers. Experienced faculty will tackle topics including staff retention, team management and handling increased responsibilities.
The CASE Management Institute allows a small group of participants the opportunity to enhance their management skills from October through May. Registrants will work within smaller cohorts over the course of the in-person and virtual program. The face-to-face October meeting is an opportunity for participants to meet each other, the faculty and set the stage for deeper conversations and learning over the next six months.

Leadership and in particular the development of leaders in uncertain political and financial times has never been so much of a priority to the higher education sector.
The Strategic Leadership Programme aims to build flexible and resilient leaders, capable of delivering large-scale change, by providing opportunities to share insights, work with a support network of peers and reflect on leadership styles and frameworks for life beyond the programme.
The programme develops the practical tools and insight required to successfully lead within a senior team, working collaboratively across and outside the organisation. It will prepare you for the necessary step-change in thinking required when aiming for the Senior Management Team in the near future.
In 2016, ePortfolios were added to AAC&U’s list of high-impact educational practices, a result of the breadth and strength of the evidence in support of the effects of ePortfolios along a number of student success metrics. However, ePortfolios can only have high levels of impact when they are done well and are built upon evidence-based practices. This webinar, a collaboration between AAC&U, the Association of Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL), and Electronic Portfolio Action & Communication (EPAC), will highlight key findings and offer guidance for ePortfolio practice from the Spring 2019 issue of the International Journal of ePortfolio.Find out more »

Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching (designed jointly by the Leadership Foundation and the Higher Education Academy) is the leadership programme to develop, enhance or transform learning and teaching programmes and courses in higher education. The process by which university programmes are transformed, or freshly developed, to meet new needs, expectations and demands will be the main theme.
This programme will provide the opportunity for a more extended learning experience interspersed with time for both reflection and the application of ideas. The full programme builds towards a Transformation Pilot, a project of your own undertaken back in your own institution with the support of a third one-day workshop (Module Three) and two facilitated on-line action-learning sets. This highly applied approach is also supported by a Reflection and Action Planning Booklet that follows the course structure, provides a framework for recording actions, reflections and intentions, and suggests further reading and resources. With the support of your insitution this can provide a very strong piece of evidence to build towards an application for professional recognition against Descriptor 3 of the UK Professional Standards Framework.
Small, specialist and independent providers are an important part of the increasingly diverse higher education system in the UK.
