The Central Hub: Workshops in your area
The Central Hub is finishing off 2013 with these popular workshops
- Co-operative Learning - a teacher's guide to working with groups - Wellington 5 December
This month at our final meeting of the Central Hub Advisory Group for 2013, Dr Sarah Leberman gave a presentation about her Regional Hub Project (completed recently with Sally Shaw, Otago University) entitled Preparing female sport management students for leadership roles in sport. Currently, Dr Leberman is Professor of Leadership & Head of School of Management at Massey University, Palmerston North. She spoke to the group about how their work focuses on preparing female students for roles in sports management. After reviewing literature and performing interviews with female sport CEOs in New Zealand, Leberman and Shaw found that there were certain strategies that could help these female students succeed in management roles. After working with a select group of students from Massey and other universities it became evident that these practices would be beneficial to all students across a range of disciplines, particularly those with students of diversity including Māori and Pasifika. The advisory group were very pleased to see a model application that could move towards a more universal process for all students preparing for management positions post-graduation.
- 8 November, we had our last meeting of the 2013 with our Central Hub Advisory Group. We continue to get guidance from them and look forward to working together next year. We have had a huge response to our Regional Hub Project Fund and our CHAG provides support in that process. Dr Sarah Leberman presented her RHF project to our CHAG.
