From political unrest to pandemic, recent events have demonstrated that universities are not immune from the impact of uncertainty. With such uncertainty likely to be the new norm globally, it is important for educators to consider how to enhance their teaching in such an environment. One way to navigate such uncertainty and teach more effectively is for teachers to improve as leaders through developing leadership agility. Leadership agility can lead to more effective teaching, greater learner engagement in both online and traditional teaching environments, and transformational learning outcomes for both students and teachers during their respective learning journeys.
