Publishing Announcement: Going Digital in Student Leadership | New Directions for Student Leadership

Going Digital in Student Leadership

Lisa Endersby and I are thrilled to announce we have been selected to serve as Co-Editors for an upcoming “New Directions for Student Leadership” (NDSL) sourcebook, to be published in Spring 2017, tentatively titled, “Going Digital in Student Leadership.”

The book will cover a variety of topics including how technology impacts all stages of the leadership journey; the influence of technology on students’ leadership development and the evolving leadership competency of faculty and staff; issues of access and accessibility; building digital leadership capacity; teaching leadership development online; digital social activism; and team building in the digital space.

We are pleased to be partnering with an outstanding group of guest authors including Dr. Marialice B.F.X. Curran (The University of St. Joseph), Paul Gordon Brown (New York Fashion Institute), Mike Ribble (Manhattan-Ogden School District), Kirstin Phelps (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Dr. Dan Jenkins (University of Southern Maine), Dr. John Hoffman (California State University, Fullerton), Ed Cabellon (Bridgewater State University), Adam Gismondi (Boston College), Dr. Laura Osteen (Florida State University), Dr. Peter Konwerski (The George Washington University) and Mallory Bower (SUNY Oswego).  Lisa and I will be writing a portion of the sourcebook as well!

This new sourcebook comes from the leadership and vision of Dr. Susan Komives and Dr. Kathy Guthrie, who serve as the NDSL series editors. Please check out the phenomenal volumes of NDSL from Jossey-Bass!  Thank you so much for giving us both this opportunity and we are thrilled to share this knowledge with the field.
