Collaborative Learning Environments for Management Education.
Seufert, Sabine; Seufert, Andreas
Confronted with the pressure of a rapidly changing environment, organizations demand new skills and capabilities of future managers. These demands and the findings of learning theory necessitate a corresponding change in education of tomorrow's managers. Future management education requires a balance between the imparting of knowledge to the learner and the learner's own construction of it. This paper describes how the foundation for such future management education can be laid by collaborative learning environments. The framework, implementation, and experiences in team-oriented learning and knowledge creation via collaborative learning environments are described, based on the Genius (Groupware Enabled Learning Environment for Education in Management) research program at the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland). Starting with an overview of Genius projects, the "Technology-Enabled Learning and Knowledge Creation" course is used as an example of how the Genius framework is put into effect on the CEMS (Community of European Management Schools) Genius platform. The learning infrastructure, consisting of distributive, interactive, and collaborative learning technologies, is described. Directed, self-directed, and collaborative learning strategies are summarized. Two figures present the CEMS Genius learning infrastructure and a chart of learning strategies. (Author/MES)
