Abstract:The leadership mindset and associated skills have become a mainstay in the education and practice of information professionals. Our own policies, pedagogies, and attitudes become part and parcel of the educational environment we foster and serve as role models for students. Guided by the discussion of selected human resources practices at Google, among others, this session will provide us with an interactive venue for examining the values we hold and for reflecting on how this relates to student learning outcomes and demands of the marketplace. Collectively, we will explore the extent to which future information professionals and scholars value diversity (broadly construed), demonstrate out-of-the-box thinking, and are capable of unorthodox solutions. This task is crucial at the time when iSchools join efforts in rethinking their curricula, with an eye on educating not just information professionals but information leaders and information creatives.
