Course Description

LEAD 581i: Special Topics: Professional Development and Conferences (3 units)

Conferences offer multiple opportunities to socialize attendees in the broad professional and
academic discourses. They also offer exciting opportunities for participants to exchange new and
emerging ideas, spaces to know one another, and even to make commitments for future projects.

In this course, students will attend the International Leadership Association (ILA) conference in
Washington DC along with pre and post class sessions to become familiar with one academic
culture related to Leadership Studies. Students will have multiple opportunities to ask questions
related to professional development and conference participation in general, and in some cases,
for those who had proposals accepted to ILA, students will have opportunities to practice and
receive feedback on presentations prior to the conference.
