Leadership Education Across the Curriculum.
Lyons, Paul
This essay argues that the development of leadership skills in the education of college students should be on the agenda of all faculty and describes ways to build the development of leadership skills into virtually any course or program of study through a technique called Reflective Controversy. An opening phase of the essay describes the signs in society at large that leadership is needed and argues that leadership will, in future, be required or expected of all college graduates. A following section explores leadership itself looking at different types of leadership and at recent research on leadership. Another section discusses how leadership skills are imparted and argues that they can be taught in the context of college courses. There follow suggestions as to how practice of these skills can be integrated into curricula by approaches such as "Reflective Controversy," an instructional approach that requires student cooperation and collaboration in task achievement and that can be used in nearly all academic disciplines. The paper goes on to describe this instructional technique in more detail including group size, materials needed, time required, advanced preparation, and the steps involved. Twenty-two references are included. (JB)
