Abstract 

This showcase provides an overview of a leadership capacity building initiative for the scholarship of teaching through a faculty-based scholars’ network, which supports strategic change through leadership, activities embedded in authentic learning tasks. The new leaders developed through this initiative will provide a critical mass for extending the network by adopting a cascade model for distributive leadership through mentoring of future implementations within and across institutions. This showcase will provide a review of the literature, and an overview of the work in progress. It will conclude with a presentation of some guiding principles for discussion and a call for expressions of interest for cascade partners.
