“Effective leadership means we must bring our values and mission - not just soundbites - to our activity in the digital sphere. And it's not as hard as you may think, thanks to the very practical examples and exercises Josie Ahlquist has given us in this book.” Brandon Busteed, President - University Partners, Kaplan, Inc. “Often, higher education leaders see social media as a burden. Digital Leadership In Higher Education should be required reading in any leadership program because it clearly demonstrates how social media can and should extend leadership rather than be a burden for it.” Russell Lowery-Hart, President - Amarillo College In this groundbreaking book, Josie Ahlquist provides readers with the tools they need to take a strong, values-based approach to leadership in the various digital spaces vital to the world of higher education today. Filled with real-world examples and tools to negotiate this ever changing digital landscape, the book fills an important niche in the literature: A user manual for your digital leadership journey. Each chapter includes tools and tactics, as well as stories that bridge the gap between technology and connection with community. This book doesn’t have a recipe for cooking up the next viral video, it offers lots of ways to stay true to individual and organizational values while engaging online. Whether a college president, dean of students, associate professor, or a program coordinator, there is a need for leaders who aren’t just early adopters and social media enthusiasts, but authentic individuals who back up their technology use with a purposeful philosophy and a values-based approach to their role.
