I have not used this information for a course yet, because I am new to teaching in the online environment.  I like the idea, however, and hope to be able to incorporate something like this into future coursework.  I like that the authors combine this particular movie with Kouzes and Posner's book on leadership.  I have not seen the movie, but I have read the book, and I can see how combining both would be an effective way to engage students to reflect on leadership.   As well, when the students interact with their classmates for enhanced discussion this will promote even deeper learning on the topic.  

Time spent reviewing site: Approximately 30 minutes.
