Authentic Classroom Leaders: The Student Perspective
Downing, Megan S.
Journal of Leadership Education, v15 n1 p178-180 2016
In a qualitative study assessing students' perceptions of faculty-student interaction in the online learning environment, findings demonstrated that students make meaning of faculty-student interaction in ways that align with authentic leadership behaviors. Faculty interaction, or lack thereof, shaped students' perceptions of faculty authenticity and commitment to students' learning outcomes. Students indicated satisfaction in their leadership learning experience when instructors were perceived as authentic in their actions.
