Allen Dorcas

Research output: Journal article publicationReview articleAcademic researchpeer-review


A 14-week university course on Leadership and Intrapersonal development was taught in the fall of 2011 to a group of 49 undergraduate students. The teacher reflects on different aspects of the course, his experience as a teacher, his views on how the course impacted him and his students, and the need for such a course at the university. It was concluded that the course is an excellent platform to develop more critical-minded students who are better equipped to tackle university studies and life in general.
