The training needs of aspiring and recently-appointed international education leaders are varied and complex, and essential skills are often learned on the job and at speed. This session explores a range of different ways in which new or aspiring leaders can develop their knowledge of international education, both in theory and in practice. Drawing on earlier EAIE-IEAA research on leadership, this session will present new perspectives on professional development for aspiring leaders.
