Butterfly Film Project
The distinction between transactional and transformational leadership styles are typically reviewed in Organizational Behavior courses; however, undergraduate students may have a limited understanding of how these leadership styles may be enacted in the workplace. The Butterfly Film Festival is an experiential learning exercise requiring students to revise a transactional leadership script through role-playing. The role play is filmed, then shared and analyzed in class. It is a structured student-led activity that develops students’ critical thinking by analyzing and synthesizing key concepts about leadership while working in small groups. The activity may be used at the undergraduate or graduate level.
