Dr. Chris Miller, Dean of the College of Education and professor of education at Morehead State and Dr. Anthony A. Piña, associate provost for teaching and learning at Sullivan University, have a newly published book by Springer publishing called “Lessons in Leadership in the Field of Educational Technology.”

According to the publisher, the book focuses on sharing the lessons learned by leaders in the field on how they became a leader and what leadership means. The primary contributions address three central questions:

What is your story about how you became a leader?

What lessons have you learned about being an effective leader?

What advice would you give others to become a leader?   

Additionally, the book spotlights the impact that past leaders have had on current leaders and upon the field of educational technology.

“This book idea came out of a presidential panel session at the 2017 international convention of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology,” Miller said. “We found that many people were not familiar with the stories of leaders in the field and what they learned as they developed as leaders. It was important for us to ensure the diversity of experiences and stories from around the world for current, developing and future leaders to learn and be inspired by some of the best in the field.”
