Title: Teachers as Leaders: Teaching During Periods of Uncertainty

From political unrest to pandemic, recent events have demonstrated that universities are not immune from the impact of uncertainty. With such uncertainty likely to be the new norm globally, it is important for educators to consider how to enhance their teaching in such an environment. One way to navigate such uncertainty and teach more effectively is for teachers to improve as leaders through developing leadership agility. Leadership agility can lead to more effective teaching, greater learner engagement in both online and traditional teaching environments, and transformational learning outcomes for both students and teachers during their respective learning journeys.

About Mr David S. Lee:

A recipient of multiple teaching excellence and teaching innovation awards, David develops case studies and teaching materials in the areas of corporate governance, decision-making, ethics, fintech, and leadership. He has received funding to explore how technology can be used to enhance learning and is a co-teacher of the award winning online course, Fintech Ethics and Risks. Before joining HKU, David worked in law and finance. As the inaugural Director for career development at HKU Business School, David is especially interested in helping students as they consider and prepare for different career and life paths.
