||School of Business (pre 2015)
This subject is designed and available exclusively for graduates of the Australian
Rural Leadership Programme (ARLP)who elect to pursue Entry Pathway 2 of the JCU Graduate
Certificate in Australian Rural Leadership. A socially responsible and critical approach
to rural issues assists leaders to recognise contested values and perspectives embedded
in complex rural issues, enabling them to improve their appreciation of diversity
and to respond from a 'worldly wise' understanding of social contexts. Students will
be required to study on-line materials relating to the topics of responsible leadership,
leadership ethics, complexity theory and the management of diversity. The assessment
strategy for this subject is integral to its design. Students will apply theories
introduced in this subject to their personal leadership practice in two stages through
the development of a 'proposal' and fuller 'reflective essay'. Students will receive
coaching from tutors to facilitate understanding and application of theory.
