Education Leadership Institute (ELI)
The Education Leadership Institute Fellowship is a shared collaborative between the Education Section, Academic Council, Physical Therapist Assistant Educators Special Interest Group, and APTA. This yearlong invitational blended learning program is designed to develop physical therapist and physical therapist assistant education program directors with leadership skills to facilitate change, think strategically, and engage in public discourse to advance the physical therapy profession.
Education Leadership Conference (ELC)
The Education Section and its special interest groups and the Academic Council sponsor an annual fall three-day Education Leadership Conference to address contemporary topics and issues relevant to these audiences.
The HERS Institute provides leadership development for women in higher education and is offered at 3 locations: Bryn Mawr College, University of Denver, or Wellesley College. The program gives participants a chance to shape the Institute to meet their unique professional needs. Prior to the Institute, participants start exploring the 3-pronged leadership development model by completing assigned reading materials and other assignments to help determine what matters most to them and their institutions. Additionally, the readings and assignments help participants start considering how they may positively lead and influence higher education.
