Personal Leadership Development, ePortfolios, reflective learning


In this pilot study, ePortfolios were used to digitally present reflective learning on aspects of personal leadership in a graduate management course in Interpersonal Dynamics. Thirty- three students participated. Students reflected on personal leadership development, in particular, the attributes of the fundamental state of leadership (Quinn, 2004) and authentic Leadership (George, 2003). Results indicated that students adept at reflective practices over the semester. They began to transform in their thinking, reporting more of the attributes ascribed to authentic leaders. Reflective practices were not sustained beyond this course. It is recommended that ePortfolio-based learning be used in promoting reflective practices and personal leadership development at the program level rather than only at the level of a course.
