This session explores a case study of developing a new leadership team dedicated to improving teaching and learning culture and practices within an existing local academic unit. We will expose and examine key conditions and requirements for fostering collective leadership and creating new structures for change at the local level within a comprehensive university setting. We will share how visioning and strategic planning including visual facilitation techniques (Sibbett, 2011) and leadership team coaching methods (Hawkins, 2011) resulted in collective vision, shared strategic priorities, and action plans. We will draw on socio-cultural and socio-material educational research (Fenwick and Nerland, 2014), and we will share the story of moving from single-point to collective ownership over professional development at a Vancouver business school.After we briefly describe the context and share results from our experience, participants will use image-based tools (Martel and Tiernan, n.d.) and facilitated discussion to explore the following question: 

What conditions must be in place to foster collaborative and collective ownership around teaching and learning in disciplines?This session will appeal to experienced educational developers, faculty leaders, and committee chairs interested in organizational change, professional and work-based learning, and socio-cultural theory.
