This project aims to build leadership capacity in the development, acquisition and sharing of mathematics learning support resources across institutions. The framework developed will focus on developing leaders while they produce a coherent mathematics learning support system for students across disciplines and across institutions. Completion requires distributed leadership and extensive collaboration. The initial =leaders in the making' will engage and mentor others, as leaders, to become fully engaged in the task. The issues and processes from two different institutions will be documented and analysed to inform theories of leadership capacity building. The impact on student learning and educational culture will be assessed. The project culminates in a national symposium and the initiation of others into the network of developing leaders to enhance mathematics learning support.
