Ann E. Prentice
iSchool at Maryland
This elective course will be of interest to all students; those who aspire to supervisory roles and those who participate in the activities of the organization under the leadership of another.
Leadership is a pervasive theme in nearly all aspects of a professional program and is one of the underlying elements of the iSchool program.
This course, offered on the web, provides opportunities for discussion in online fora, for small groups to work on projects, and for regular interaction. It also provides opportunities for each student to express her/his ideas in short, individual papers. Teaching, learning, and working in an online format is important to the ways in which we interact in the information age; the ways in which we interact with our colleagues in the workplace and in professional societies as well as in numerous other interactions. The course provides an opportunity to become comfortable in this environment.
