  Description As we adopt a more peer-oriented environment for our courses faculty begin losing their traditional role as leaders in the classroom. In addition, more and more we are asked to participate in bringing about change in our classes and beyond -- changes in pedagogy, changes in diversity and inclusion, and even to initiate/participate in research or teaching groups. How do we share the authority of learning in our classes without ceding the final responsibility for that learning? What models of leadership and participation exist that can help us adapt to the changing demands? And how do we model these roles so that students can effectively develop these leadership skills as well? Using discussions, readings, and case studies, we will explore these questions as we attempt to characterize effective leadership and our most appropriate response to the challenges and opportunities of leadership demands from our professional lives.
