Ease your student supervision speed bumps.

John Dugan // Disrupting Leadership Education, Proposing a Twitter Ethic of Care & Unapologetically Nerdy/Apologetically Awkward

What if there was an educator that taught you how to challenge and deconstruct leadership frameworks or theory over memorizing or accepting them as truth? But what if this same teacher was effortlessly hilariously, authentic, and is what he calls “Unapologetically nerdy/apologetically awkward”? This very leadership scholar, educator, and author is featured on this episode, Dr. John Dugan. We discuss the state of leadership education and how technology, especially social media can enhance the classroom. John also shares his personal digital leadership approach that allows him to amplify other voices and calls for an ethical approach to tools like Twitter.
