A research agenda for leadership learning and development through higher education, edited by Susan R. Komives (Professor Emerita, Department of Counseling, Higher Education, and Special Education, College of Education, University of Maryland) and Julie E. Owen (Associate Professor of Leadership Studies, School of Integrative Studies, George Mason University, US) - (e-book)

"Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary. Adopting a multi-level perspective, this innovative Research Agenda offers a comprehensive and critical overview of research on all aspects of contemporary leadership education. Bringing together enlightening contributions from experienced scholars of leadership education along with a team of early career critical scholars, the book examines essential dimensions of leadership education processes and outcomes and interrogates the knowledge bases that shape these dimensions. It explores higher educational contexts, different types of leadership learners, key program design elements and pedagogies, and classic and critical research methodologies. Each chapter adopts a critical analysis approach to scrutinize existing research and identify key challenges, gaps, and tensions in the field of leadership learning and development. Providing a rationale for centering the future of leadership education in social justice, the book ultimately challenges the reader to prioritize innovation, inclusion, and equity in their research and practice going forward. This state-of-the-art Research Agenda will prove an essential resource for leadership educators and practitioners interested in advancing equity and social justice outcomes in their program delivery. Its overview of the cutting edge of research will also be foundational in introductory graduate leadership education programs"--, Provided by publisher
