SS 320 - Group Process
An upper-level leadership skills course in which students cultivate the interactive skills essential for effective leadership. Students examine roles of leaders in wilderness groups and outdoor education, and they develop skills in facilitation, group assessment, program design, conflict management, one-on-one counseling, working with a co-instructor, and interventions. Through classroom discussion and experiential activities with classmates and local secondary school students, each participant identifies and develops a personal leadership style that is responsive to student needs and educational focus.
