- 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.
