Teaching: The Missing (and Critical) Dimension in Management Education.
Benson, Gary L.
Research on teaching effectiveness is discussed, along with initiatives to improve the quality of teaching in business and management schools and colleges. Responses to a survey on teaching effectiveness are examined to identify perceptions of 427 undergraduate and graduate business students. In addition, results of a survey of 79 business and management faculty members concerning their training as a teacher are summarized. Student rankings of the teaching in 10 types of courses revealed that teaching in business/management courses was ranked relatively low (eighth) in quality. The faculty survey found that only two teachers had received any formal teacher training or development as part of their doctoral program in management or business administration. Only three of the faculty taught in business/management colleges that provided ongoing inservice teacher training and development programs. The following recommendations are offered: toughen accreditation standards, develop voluntary programs, change the promotion and tenure process, develop incentives and rewards to meaningfully encourage and reward teaching excellence, and develop better methods and procedures for evaluating teaching effectiveness.
