Perceiving The Complex Path: Encouraging And Supporting Academic Exploration For College Students, Claudia M. Lang
Counseling Psychology | Master's Theses
This thesis offers an overview of how college students can be supported in the process of academic exploration.

Select academic advising methodologies are reviewed, chosen for their pertinence to the activity of encouraging exploratory behavior in the academic realm. Theories discussed come from two varying perspectives: those based on philosophical foundations, and those based on social science foundations. …

Serving Our Children During And After Covid-19: Application Of Shepherd Leadership At Home And School, Kong Wah Cora Chan

Shepherd leadership is a specific form of servant leadership. Although there are many similarities between shepherd leadership and servant leadership, theoretical or empirical studies of shepherd leadership are far behind servant leadership.
