Developing Leaders Across Cultures
This unit will help participants investigate the theological, philosophical, anthropological, educational and developmental foundations of leadership and leadership development in order to enable participants to engage in the practical challenge of developing leaders in cultures that have different assumptions and worldviews. Models of education and curriculum design for leadership development will also be explored.
The assessments in this unit include critical evaluation of an existing approach to developing leaders in a particular cultural context, articulating a personal philosophy of approach to cross-cultural leadership development and designing contextualised leadership development for a specific cultural context.

Postgraduate online learning at SMBC
At SMBC we believe in Christian community and the importance of learning from each other. Our approach to online teaching and learning is highly interactive. There are a range of different interactive activities including collaborative reading, discussion, peer feedback, creative presentations and the use of a number of different interactive apps. Lecturers present material through written or audio-visual presentations that can be read or watched at times that are convenient for each participant. There are no set weekly times for meeting. Lecturers may occasionally arrange a videoconference at a time that suits most participants.
One of the most important things for successful online study is to set aside dedicated time each week and to be disciplined in keeping up-to-date. We advise setting aside approximately 5 hours per week for reading and 3 hours each week to work through the activities online. Extra time should also be set aside for each assessment, budgeting approximately 12 hours for each 1000 words.
