In this article, we discuss about the possibility of using teaching strategies provided by e-learning to plan educational interventions aimed at developing and strengthening leadership. The most prestigious of international studies and educational practices - usually based on action learning perspective - say that the new skills for future leaders training should act on the superior ability to manage contexts and/or to adopt facilitative leadership, spread team Reflexivity and it gives attention to group goal. Equally, we must pay attention to the perception and self-government of personal characteristics related to self-efficacy, management of emotions and world view.
E-learning teaching allows to implement dimension of learning on-line management training by strengthening education systems in the presence and taking action on critical elements which the traditional training fails to provide effective responses.
The enhancement of training systems concerns on access to learning environments, known as virtual classrooms, available in asynchronous mode and continuous implementation. Also, this plane contains the ability to compare managerial biographies and to realize case studies about the classification by interesting areas and some collaboration opportunities with other managers about the business cases or about design of corporate restructuring. These are simulated using shared writing (wiki model).
Critical elements for which e-learning provides effective solutions concern on the possibility of establishing preliminary contact with the manager and people involved in these activities for training customization. Another points are: the implementation of measures for accompanying and coaching business through the use of online tutors, the education in virtual groups of interest and the possibility for users to choose own personalized training modules organized by drawing on different courses.
Even if the e-learning will contribute significantly to the development of educational leadership, we note that this system should not be thought of as all-encompassing but rather as integrated training system. We propose, therefore, the blended approach as one of evolved models for the integration in different teaching approaches; this way enhances the best experiences of the past and uses electronic resources to extend the range of training and to allow greater access of results in managerial contexts.
