Exploring Instructional Strategies in Student Leadership Development Programming
Journal of Leadership Studies (2013)
  • Daniel Jenkins

The author explored 24 commonly used instructional strategies in student leadership development programming recently profi led in the leadership education literature. Through a national web-based survey, this study asked leadership educators teaching classroom-based academic credit-bearing undergraduate leadership studies courses how often they used certain instructional strategies. Leadership educators showed a preference for discussion-based pedagogies as well as instructional strategies that promoted conceptual understanding and personal growth. Although the infrequent use of tests and quizzes in leadership education was anticipated, the sparse use of highly experiential skill-building activities such as simulation, role play, and games was surprising.
