Chapter 6: Informal and experiential learning in virtually mediated organizational leadership doctoral studies

Elisabeth E. Bennett and Margaret Gorman


Informed by virtual human resource development (VHRD), this chapter discusses informal and experiential aspects of doctoral leadership programs that dovetail scholarship and practice, as well as the question of transferring learning from the doctorate to the organizational context. The chapter includes discussion of leadership in practice, the relationship between virtual doctoral studies and such constructs as virtual teams, course design that incorporates experiential components, and maintains that empirical research in the doctoral program is a highly experiential learning encounter that transforms the individual leader and potentially transforms how organizations solve future problems.
