A Technology to Support Leader Development: Computer Games

ByHarold O’Neil and Yuan-Chung Fisher

In this chapter we suggest one promising technological means for teaching and assessing leader development. We define technology broadly and view it as consisting of hardware and software systems as well as systematic procedures used to facilitate learning and assessment. We discuss an example of the use of computerbased games for teaching and assessing individual leadership. The chapter closes with some suggestions for future research.
