Preparing Proactive Transformational Leaders.
Groff, Warren H.
An introductory leadership course in an Ed.D. program in Child and Youth Studies, a redesigned early and middle childhood program at Nova University (Florida), is described. The course's purposes are first, to enable professionals to understand the impact of demographic, social, economic, political, and technological transitions on the institutions of society, particularly the family and youth, and second, to assist each student in developing active and continuous learning experiences to provide him with tools to become dedicated and proactive leaders. The course design incorporated development of conceptual frameworks, principles of adult learning, and information processing and reinforcement. The course's three sessions consisted of: (1) an overview with focus on strategic thinking and transformational leadership; (2) human resources development and organizational development; and (3 contemporary social problems. During the course, each student developed a three-year individual education plan. Links with the subsequent leadership and specialization courses are explained. 10 references. (MSE)
