As the field of leadership education has grown and developed over the past 20 years, so too has our knowledge and understanding of the leadership education practices and environments that facilitate students’ leadership learning and development. From the introduction of the Social Change Model of Leadership Development in 1996, to the Kellogg Report Leadership in the Making in 2001, to research from the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership (MSL) from 2006 to today, and with many other contributions in between, the conceptual, theoretical, and empirical research base on college student leadership education has substantially grown. We know much more today than ever before on college student leadership development, and it is our responsibility as leadership educators to use this great insight to guide contemporary practice in leadership education.
The 2016 National Leadership Symposium will capitalize on this knowledge and focus on how leadership educators can incorporate intentional and evidence-practice in leadership curriculum and co-curriculum [or in their leadership programs and courses]. A key finding from the MSL is that “it isn’t what we do, but how we do it that ultimately makes a difference” in leadership education (Dugan, Kodama, Correia, & Associates, 2013, p. 6). Building off of this, the Symposium will focus on intentional and evidence-based pedagogies, practices, and considerations that can maximize student leadership learning and development.
Through participating in the National Leadership Symposium participants will learn about:
-The historical and contemporary landscape of college student leadership education
-Intentional and evidence-based practice in leadership education
-Programs, pedagogies, and practices that facilitate college student leadership learning
-Strategies for implementing high impact practices in leadership education
-Data and research that can inform leadership education practices
