: The authors of this Collection draw on their experience at one of the nation's largest leadership preparation programs, Eastern Michigan University. As often occurs in higher education the first steps to embrace performance activities were tenuous and begrudging. But as the work continued these faculty readily embraced a new pedagogy, became enthusiastic about the positive impact on students, and designed activities that both challenge students and significantly strengthen the instructional program.
In each chapter the authors take a retrospective look at their experience and provide important insights into the improvement process. They offer a thoughtful critique of the changes in curriculum, instruction and assessment occurring in one program. Their learning offers important lessons to others embarking on this journey.
