Subject wise thought provoking topics, resourceful audio-visual pedagogy, brainstorming discussion forum, explorative assignments, graphic organiser of concepts, reflective peer assessment of panoramic views, analytical quizzes, all are directed to consolidate objective wisdom of leadership in global development. This online course has given me wide spectrum of exposure to different types of leadership across the boundaries. Program instructors and providers deliver video lectures with concepts, clarifications, examples, personal experience, reference from published research papers, critical analysis of research works, trend of further research , suggested list of supplementary readings etc. So, the in-campus Leadership in Global Development MicroMasters® program in University of Queensland will surely develop effective and successful global leaders motivated in adaptive leadership to solve wicked problems across the boundaries.
