Welcome to the Science Leaders’ Hub, produced by professionals for professionals.
Whether you are a head of science, principal teacher, 2nd in department, AST, SLE or an adviser you will find a wealth of material to support you in your science leadership role. Use the resources for your own CPD or to lead the development of others. Aspiring science leaders will find many resources to help them as their career develops.
Thanks are due to the many ASE members and their colleagues who have shared their expertise to create this new Science Leaders' Hub. The success of this resource depends upon contributions from the users.
The Science Leaders’ Hub consists of three distinctive areas.
Survival Guide (£35 ASE members, £60 non-members)
This edited and reviewed resource, written by fellow professionals, offers advice through 'How to....guides' on all aspects of running a science department. The 'Advice centre' pages act as a 'virtual mentor' coaching the reader in how to move his or her department forward. The guide consists of 6 sections, downloadable as pdf's, as well as electronic versions of referenced ASE articles. Purchasers are entitled to download all future updated editions and will also receive alerts regarding recommended content.
Scenario Collection (free to ASE members)
This collection of real life scenarios is available free to ASE members. Find out how other science leaders have coped and learnt from their successes (and mistakes).
Share and Adapt (free to ASE members)
This is where ASE members can share their good practice. Whilst the ASE does not endorse the contents of this, unedited, material it has been uploaded for YOUR benefit. See what others have done and borrow and improve! Use the opening questions on each page as a focus for departmental discussions or CPD. And don’t forget... if you have an activity or tip to share, a document to contribute, or a blog posting to recommend, email the Science Leaders’ Hub Editor firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you want to communicate with other professionals try joining #ASEchat on Monday evenings at 8pm. This is open to members and non-members
ASE would like to thank and acknowledge the work of all contributors to the Science Leaders' Hub.
