Teaching about Leadership or Teaching through Leadership?
Seger, Jan; Bergsten, Urban
Journal of Leadership Education, v12 n1 p252-261 Win 2013
This article is based on experiences and convictions from teaching leadership to students on the university and college levels. Teaching through leadership rather than about leadership is advocated. Student learning and facilitator teaching are contrasted. Leadership is viewed more as a mutual relationship rather than certain personality traits of the leader. The importance of understanding group processes is stressed.
