The Purdue LEAD Program: Implications for Other Educational Contexts.
Figley, Charles R.; And Others
The purpose of this paper is threefold: (1) to describe briefly the Purdue Leadership Effectiveness and Development (LEAD) Program operating within the Department of Child Development and Family Life; (2) to review other programs with similar characteristics in other areas and at other levels of education; and (3) to discuss briefly the implications of the approach for family life education classes. The Purdue LEAD Program is characterized as a dual-approach instructional system in that it provides an undergraduate course in leadership aimed at developing skills particularly relevant to leading college discussion groups and, at the same time, furnishes qualified and supervised discussion group leaders to enhance the effectiveness of instruction in the large marriage and family relationships courses. In the appendix of this report, the authors have included a variety of materials which should be helpful in developing a similar program within most educational contexts. (Author/PC)
