Ann E. Prentice
iSchool at Missouri
This elective course will be of interest to all students; those who aspire to leadership roles and those who participate in the activities of the organization under the leadership of another. Leadership is present in all cultures and in all eras and while it may be practiced in slightly different ways
depending on the cultural environment and time period, its basic principles remain constant. Leadership is a pervasive theme in nearly all aspects of a professional program and is one of the underlying elements of the iSchool programs.
This course, offered on the web, provides opportunities for discussion in on line fora, 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.
