The European Association for International Education (EAIE) Conference, celebrated in Liverpool, is considered to be the largest higher education conference with more than 3,000 participants around the world – and this year Lead3.0 was there!

Within the framework of this year’s conference theme ‘Imagine…’ as international educators, have a dream of a higher education that transcends national borders, nurtures global citizens and moves us closer to freedom, equality and peace around the world; Dr. Christophe Terrasse and Jean-Baptiste Maillard from the EFMD, Peter Mcluskie from Coventry University and Sue Rossano-Rivero from Münster University of Applied Sciences presented the results from their current research entitled: “Soft e-leadership skills, hard learning in Europe”.

The session exposed the results of the pan-European survey conducted by Lead3.0’s partnership among teachers, trainers, students and managers to evaluate their needs in terms of soft e-leadership skills and the capacities of the higher education institutions to meet this demand.

The participants in the audience prised the student-centred approach taken to build an e-learning offer that proposes operational recommendations to higher education institutions and trainers on how to teach these e-leadership skills taking full advantage of innovative delivery channels and building communities of practice among trainers, students and managers.
