Robert M. Gagné: Nurturing the Development of Junior Faculty
Bob Gagné was already a well-established leader in the instructional design field when, in January 1976, shortly after obtaining my doctoral degree, I joined the Instructional Systems faculty at Florida State University. Indeed, at that time Bob was undoubtedly THE intellectual leader in the field, and I already had great admiration for him. Nonetheless, my admiration for Bob as a leader further increased as a result of my interactions with him at Florida State. Return with me now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, as I describe some of those interactions and leadership skills I observed Bob employing.
