Group Work and Leadership: Perception of FCS Students
Arendt, Susan W.; Gregoire, Mary B.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v98 n3 p32-38 2006
No known studies have examined the perception of family and consumer science (FCS) students related to group work in the classroom and its relationship to leadership. In this qualitative study, two groups of FCS students--hospitality management and dietetics--viewed group projects as exercises in leadership skills that had many barriers. Additionally, students voiced concerns about the transferability of classroom group leadership experiences to the workplace. Strategies that faculty can use to assist in student leadership development through group work are described in this article. Suggestions are provided for new research areas in student leadership. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
