Summary This chapter is about the importance of distributed leadership in institutions of higher education as a means to enhance pedagogy. It is explained that the emphasis on engagement, participation and collaboration of a distributed leadership approach encourages academics and professional staff to work together to contribute their expertise to jointly determined goals. This differs from the traditional leader-centric approach It will be shown that a distributed leadership approach embraces many people rather than focusing on the individual academic and embraces a more collaborative environment. In so doing, distributed leadership provides a 'strengths-based' approach (Harvey 2014) to pedagogic enhancement.
