Cultivating Intellectual Safety in a Women and Leadership Course
Shollen, S. Lynn
Journal of Leadership Education, v15 n3 p1-10 2016
This application brief provides pedagogical strategies for teaching and learning about women and leadership as a potentially sensitive subject, with emphasis on creating an intellectually safe learning environment. Findings from a study of students' expectations and experiences with a Women and Leadership course showed that the strategies affected students' learning experiences. Some strategies also challenged the instructor as a woman leader.
