About the Authors
  • How can every management class be a dynamic, unforgettable experience? This much-needed book distils over half a century of the authors' combined experience as university professors, consultants, and advisors to corporate training departments. In a lively, hands-on fashion, it describes the fundamental elements in every learning situation, allowing readers to adapt the suggestions to their particular teaching context. It sparks reflection on what we do in the classroom, why we do it, and how it might be done more effectively. The chapters are broadly organized according to things you do before class, things you do during class, and things you do in between and after class, so that every instructor, whether newly-minted PhDs facing their first classroom experience, experienced faculty looking to polish their teaching techniques, consultants who want to have more impact, or corporate trainers wishing to develop in-house teaching skills, can benefit from the invaluable advice given.

    • Will help everyone to be more exciting teachers, whether their discipline is management, leadership, accounting, finance, marketing, or sales
    • Explores a variety of teaching techniques such as lecturing, discussion method, case method, role playing, and experiential methods
    • Numerous anecdotes, examples, and stories from real teaching situations in MBA classrooms, Executive Education classrooms, and consulting and/or one company internal programs

    Reviews & endorsements

    'I have never understood why the academic world does so little to prepare new faculty members for the most important work they do - teaching. The many insights in this book are gleaned from a career in education and from imparting it to new faculty at the Darden School - known for outstanding educators - and we should all be grateful that so much wisdom has at last been codified.' Allan R. Cohen, Edward A. Madden Professor and Director of Corporate Entrepreneurship, Babson College
