Abstract

Expectations of what constitutes competent and capable graduates from Universities and Colleges have been reported in a number of significant reports in Australia, eg. Mayer, Finn and Karpin. However, until recently there have been few significant attempts to use graduate attributes as either a knowledge management strategy or quality process in Australian Universities. This paper outlines and discusses the development of generic graduate attributes at an Australian University as a first stage to using competency profiling as a leadership strategy for 'knowledge' management. It also draws attention to the possibilities for knowledge management by focusing on quality processes to develop specific competencies, at discipline levels. This is done by the use of generic graduate attributes as the primary focus for a detailed audit of the attributes being developed, as well as auditing the teaching and assessment strategies being utilised to attain those attributes. Four relevant educational leadership theories are then identified and discussed in terms of the situational issues that are raised in the paper. Those theories are strategic leadership, organisation-wide leadership, educative leadership, and teacher centred leadership.
