Wanted: CASTLE advisory board members
Scott McLeod, J.D., Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Educational Leadership at the University of Kentucky. He also is the Founding Director of the UCEA Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education (CASTLE), the nation’s only academic center dedicated to the technology needs of school administrators, and was a co-creator of the wildly popular video series, Did You Know? (Shift Happens). He has received numerous national awards for his technology leadership work, including recognitions from the cable industry, Phi Delta Kappa, and the National School Boards Association. In Spring 2011 he was a Visiting Canterbury Fellow at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. Dr. McLeod blogs regularly about technology leadership issues at Dangerously Irrelevant and Mind Dump, and occasionally at The Huffington Post. He can be reached at scottmcleod.net.
After 3 years, it's time to set up an advisory board for CASTLE. Although I have a few people in mind that I'd like to invite, I also thought it would be great to tap into the expertise of my readers. Duties would include reviewing curricula, giving feedback on current initiatives, suggesting ideas for future projects, connecting us with external partners and/or opportunities, etc. All work and collaboration will be done electronically. Time commitment shouldn't be too strenuous and the work (hopefully) will be interesting.
Interested in serving on the CASTLE advisory board? Drop me a note describing your professional background/experience and why you think you'd be a good advisor to the only center in the U.S. dedicated to the technology needs of school administrators. International applicants are welcome. Deadline is Monday, May 5.
Questions? Leave 'em as a comment to this post so all can see my replies. Please note that, if interest is high, I can't take everyone and will have to make some difficult choices. Thanks!
