Crafting the Kallion Syllabus:
Part 1

Join Dr. Ilana Horwitz, Assistant Professor and Chair of Contemporary Jewish Life at Tulane University, to help workshop her syllabus for a new class she will be teaching in Spring 2022, titled: “Jewish Leadership.” 

Participants will also receive a new Kallion-LTCP checklist designed to help them explore ways in which conventional syllabus “vocabulary” might be more richly imagined. Bring your own draft syllabi for the new semester.

This is an event of the Leading Teachers Community of Practice (LTCP).

how we talk about what we do

Paraphrasing the ancient Athenian author Xenophon, Kallion treats  leadership as the practice of “seeing to it that others have what they need and become what they need to be” ( The Education of Cyrus 1.6.7). For Kallion, leading is about providing for others and helping them develop the skills and character they need. Studying the humanities helps us both understand our human needs at the deepest possible level and how to meet them.


Kallion Leadership sketchbooks

An essential tool for recording your leadership journey and mapping where you want to go

Sketching leadership is a way of taking ownership of your leadership development by thinking more deeply about problems of leadership, creating a clearer and more precise vocabulary for yourself, and visualizing what your own leadership would look like once it has been informed by your sketch. Your sketches can also serve as a record and a reminder of your leadership journey. A sketchbook is thus a kind of amulet you carry with you, with the power to unlock your potential at any right moment.
