The Learner-Centered paradigm on campuses has grown into an institution-wide effort led by administrators at all levels, working to make their campuses into learner-centered environments. Stepping into that movement, this book shows campus leaders how to translate theory into practice. Outlining how the roles of academic leaders must change in a learner-centered academic environment, the authors explain the varied processes to be followed as all levels of administration transform practices from an instructional leadership mode to a learner-centered leadership mode. The book is a powerful tool for improving higher education for everyone from presidents to department chairs.
