This research explores the instructional and assessment strategies used most often by leadership educators who teach online, academic credit-bearing leadership studies courses at graduate-and undergraduate-levels. Findings from this study suggest that discussion-based pedagogies, most commonly facilitated in online discussion boards, dominate both areas. Reflection, case studies, and group or individual projects were also used frequently.
