Curriculum Development Series: Project-Based Experiential Learning

April 20, 2018 | Honolulu, Hawaii, USA


Experiential learning is an increasingly important pedagogy for business school programs as deans, faculty, and executives increasingly recognize that critical aspects of managing and leading are learned most effectively through practice rather than through traditional classroom-based pedagogies.

Experiential learning is a particularly effective element of the business school curriculum as it helps students to successfully manage implementation challenges that often involve influencing colleagues and getting things done in the context of hidden agendas, unwritten rules, political coalitions, and competing points of view.

This seminar will focus on how to teach project-based learning and integrate it into a curriculum. Tools and templates to use for effective teaching and learning will be presented. Discussions will emphasize the role of coaching, of feedback and evaluations, and will examine how to develop syllabi and course material. It also will focus on methods for recruiting clients, for supporting members of faculty, and for measuring outcomes.
