2. Module Two: Leadership Challenges In Low Income Country Higher Education Research Ecosystems

2 Weeks
8 lessons
1 quiz
47 students


  • Completion of Module 1

Module introduction: In the first module of this course, we explored the importance of development research leadership and why Higher Education Institutions in low-income countries need to be at the forefront of providing leadership in this important area. In module two, we extend deeper into the higher education research ecosystems to understand the research leadership challenges therein. We examine the common challenges encountered in research ecosystems in LMIC institutions. We then conduct a detailed analysis of your own institution’s research ecosystem to identify local challenges and gaps. This exercise is then extended to a similar analysis for gaps in the relevance of your institution to the external stakeholders. By the end of the session therefore, we will have completed a full diagnostic of the leadership challenges and gaps in our institutions’ research ecosystem capabilities.

Module outline:

  • Session 2.1: The Leadership Challenge Model
  • Session 2.2: Common challenges and gaps in the research ecosystems of LMIC HEIs
  • Session 2.3: Diagnostic Activity 2: Scanning – Identifying the Research Ecosystem challenges and gaps in your institution
  • Session 2.4: Diagnostic Activity 3: Scanning – Analysing your institution’s relevance to stakeholders and the gaps

    Very interactive, more practical activities and provoking module. Applicable to our local context, while we need to review and redesign our research ecosystem to engage all the recommended practitioners and stakeholder as well.

    This is very important for us as we come from low and middle income countries.

    Module 2 was another great learning experience.
    The module indicates that leaders in all LMIC/LIC universities, institutes and community colleges have similar challenge to take on when it comes to the research, innovation, creativity and development ecosystems.

    True. Though the research ecosystem in my country is best by many challenges, there is a tendency not to enlist them so that they can be addressed step by step. Therefore, I find the tips on addressing challenges by the leadership challenge model quite helpful. They are practical in nature to get me started.

      I meant to say that the research ecosystem in my country is faced by many challenges. Not that its best.
