Meeting Learning Objectives in a Multicultural Leadership Course: Using Assessment to Inform Pedagogical Practice
Fine, Leigh E.; Lee, Chance
Journal of Leadership Education, v16 n2 p40-58 Apr 2017
We have two aims here. Our first is to articulate what gains may be made by students who engage in our course to determine what exactly is gained by students who participate in such experiences. We believe such courses have educational value, but needed to find a way to articulate our course's success in helping students meet our stated learning objectives. Our second aim is to illustrate both the necessity, rewards, and limitations of engaging in critical engagement with the assessment-practice cycle (Maki, 2002). Here, we reflect on what changes we or others could make to our course to better achieve our desired goals, as well as how we might continue to strengthen our assessment efforts. We hope that our analysis here provides some starting points to assess multicultural leadership programs' efficacy in meeting student learning outcomes.
