Interviews: Linking Leadership Theory to Practice
Smith, Deborah N.; Roebuck, Deborah B.
Journal of Leadership Education, v9 n2 p135-143 Sum 2010
Leadership educators use various tools to enable their students to learn about leadership. This article describes the assignment "Interview with a Leader" which the authors have incorporated into several different leadership courses. Grounded in constructivist and social learning theories, the authors have found this assignment to be particularly effective as a strategy for helping students make meaning of the complexities and application of leadership. Furthermore, students found the assignment to be especially helpful for connecting leadership theory to practice.
