ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to explore the experiences of undergraduate students having experienced the‘Korean Women in Leadership’ class, and to provide basic data for the development of women's leadership education suitable for the Korean situation. The research questions were: First, what did female college students recognize and experience through the‘Korean Women in Leadership’ class? Second, what did female college students find helpful through the class, and why do they think that? Third, what did female college students find unhelpful through the class, and why? This study derives the implications and meaning of the results using Colaizzi’s phenomenological methodology. The reason for using Colaizzi’s phenomenological methodology is to clarify the common meaning and essence of students' educational experiences more in-depth. The participants were six students attending a four-year women's university in Seoul taking ‘Korean Women in Leadership’ undergraduate course. Data were obtained through weekly discussion assignments, midterm and final reports, reflection journals, and special lecture reports. As a result of the analysis, 7 components, and 20 sub-components were derived, which were grouped into three themes: ① personal issues on women’s leadership, ② issues on the concept of women’s leadership, and ③ issues on women’s leadership education. The research results were discussed considering the design and the direction of the development of women’s leadership education program, and finally, limitations of the study and suggestions for follow-up studies were presented.
