  2. Thanks Peter,
    I don’t think these are ‘doctorate by publication’ worthy and I’m not ‘famous’ enough to do it that way.
    Although they are outputs they are actually inputs of my PhD thinking, and I am happy with that.

    What a great list of publications. You should try for a “doctorate by publication” – have you thought of that?
    I enjoyed your posting on Inger’s blog too.
    Should meet 4 a Kaffee?

Hi, my name is Heather Davis. I began this blog shortly after I began a PhD study ith the School of Management, RMIT, Australia, in 2008.

It was set up to share this journey—-musings, readings, aha moments etc.

As part of my study, I constructed a speculative typology called Worldly, Sustaining, Leadingful, Relational and Learningful Leadership Literacies to capture some of the significant leadership mindset shifts occuring in the Knowledge Era. These Leadership Literacies were then explored for theoretical resonance and for signs of observation and practice within Australian university leadership. 

As a practice-led researcher I made a conscious effort to use web 2.0 and social media as a way of seeking feedback and disseminating information to my communities of practice throughout the study.
