Educational leadership includes extending the reach and impact of teaching beyond the classroom (The University of British Columbia, 2014). The objective of this panel is to offer examples of educational leadership to inspire reflection, dialogue and action (Cunningham & Cordeiro, 2006). In what ways can faculty, graduate students and instructional development staff extend their teaching practices beyond their current courses and classrooms through educational leadership (Carr, 2014)? Following an introduction to educational leadership as conceptualized at University of British Columbia, the panel will present examples of student-centered educational leadership initiatives undertaken by University of British Columbia faculty that produce significant impacts on student learning and teaching careers. The panel will support the conference theme “Achieving harmony: Tuning into practice” by providing examples of how teaching practice and educational leadership approaches can be combined to spark teaching collaboration among faculty and extend their teaching practices beyond their typical professional contexts. Panelists will highlight how students, teachers, and educational institutions can benefit from these forms of educational leadership. In this session, participants will:

• Explore the diverse experiences of teachers who have pursued educational leadership initiatives that extended their teaching practice across a wide range of interdisciplinary, institutional, and student learning environments;

• Share their own teaching practices with other session participants and collaboratively identify potential educational leadership opportunities to extend their teaching practices beyond their courses and classrooms;

• Identify and share with session participants one or more concrete examples of teaching initiatives that could make a significant impact on teaching and learning at their own institutions.
