Common Core Program Series: “Motivating Students and Broadening Their Horizons through Collaboration with Business Practitioners

Tuesday, 13 September, 2016 - 12:30 to 14:00

Speaker:  Prof Roger LEVERMORE, Associate Professor of Business Education
                Department of Management

Format: Seminar

Seminar Overview:

The seminar focuses on two themes; how successful collaboration with business practitioners has helped connect theories and applications, which acts as a source of inspiration to students. This builds on a major characteristic of MGMT 1120 Developing the Leader in You, which collaborates with leaders from the local industries to develop real-world course materials encompassing business scenarios and ethical issues. This partially involves the effective integration of experiential learning business cases to help motivate students on this course. The seminar also focuses on how a combination of knowledge-sharing and self-discovery processes further developed interest in this common core course.
