Clarkson University School of Business dean Dayle Smith spoke before Hong Kong educators at an international conference hosted by the Hong Kong Institute of Service Leadership and Management. It was on the campus of Polytechnic University of Hong Kong.
She discussed connecting the service leadership model to global leadership roles and responsibilities.
“My keynote explored diverse views of leadership theory, experiential service learning, and service science thinking,” Smith says in a news release. “I offered an integrated way of considering the ideas stemming from these three perspectives in shaping educational imperatives for Hong Kong tertiary institutions.”
Smith was part of a senior Fulbright team that worked with the eight University Grants Committees (UGC) universities in Hong Kong during the major general education reform initiative implemented in 2012. As this conference illustrates, Hong Kong universities are collaborating to offer courses and programs in service leadership, developing curriculum that's supported and enhanced by experiential learning.
