Fostering Innovation and Leadership in the African Academy: A pathway for personal transformation

College students and new lecturers in most sub-Saharan African countries face a great deal of challenges. These range from poor financial support to inadequate technology and resources. Despite these and other challenges, however, Fostering Innovation and Leadership in the African Academy suggests that students and educators alike can succeed in their research and academic endeavours, continue to remain fulfilled, and maximize their potential. Through this book, Dr. Obidimma Ezezika provides solid, tried and tested advice and presents ways for one to become a fulfilled and high-achieving academic within a system that poses many challenges and in which the odds for success are relatively slim. Most of the ideas in the book emerged from Dr. Ezezika's ten years of experience providing workshops and consulting engagements to students and educators in various universities and secondary schools in Africa and North America. This book will teach you practical tools that you can easily apply to your life to enhance your personal and professional development. Dr. Ezezika lays out a set of guidelines that, if followed, will support the aspiring scholar in navigating through various challenges. And, for many, these guidelines could make the difference between success and failure. There is rapid economic growth occurring in many African countries today. His hope is that this boom will also be felt among the school corridors. There is no shortage of bright minds in Africa, Dr. Ezezika argues, but quality education is the missing link. African academies have much to offer in terms of fostering innovation and building the next generation of leaders. This book seeks to show that it is what we do with what we already have that can really set the trajectory of our lives and academies.
