Information from Dr. Creps about upcoming classes:

LDRS 7373 Contemporary Issues in Organizational Leadership Research

This course is open to Cohorts 1 and 2. It is based on the International Leadership Association conference, November 5-8, 2020 in San Francisco. (The ILA is still deciding whether the conference will be in-person or remote.) Students are required to travel to the conference if it is held live, or participation remotely if it is not. The professor is Dr. Ben Thomas and the syllabus is on Discovery. You’ll register and pay for this class as you would any other. While your schedule shows it as lasting a whole semester, this is just an accommodation to the schedule of the event. You register for the class in the usual way at the beginning of the semester, then attend the conference. Dr. Thomas syllabus will inform you about the assignments, which are no greater than any other CFLS class. We’ll talk more about these experience in July.
