Abstract: This study adopts a reflexivity-based approach that assesses teaching leadership and innovation by using authors’ own experiences based on the data collected from an online micro master program. Reflexivity refers to questioning what we might be taking for granted and examining underlying assumptions, decisions, actions, interactions etc. One lecturer has taught theory of innovation while the other taught leadership. By doing a reflexivity-based assessment of two courses offered by two different lecturers, the research part of this study tries to open a door of opportunity to have a critical understanding. For this, experiences are assessed in terms of the whole teaching process including ‘before, during and after’ periods of courses to support this critical thinking.

Keywords: critical thinking; higher education; online course.
