|ORTM 405 - Leadership Praxis|
Students explore leadership theories and practices in depth as applied to work and institutions in outdoor and adventure recreation, education, travel, and conservation. Topics include leadership theories (e.g. servant leadership, culturally-appropriate leadership), group dynamics and management, decision-making, team and public communication, coalition building, and advocacy. The course engages with leadership as ethical and socio-ecologically engaged practice. It explores ways that privilege, gender, race, and social discourses intersect outdoor and conservation leadership, participant experiences, and professional careers. Students develop repertoires of practice through leading and mentoring experiences outside of scheduled class.
