Effective Media Use: Using Film and Television to Instruct an Organizational Behavior Course
Kernodle, Tom
American Journal of Business Education, v2 n8 p37-50 2009
Media can be used to effectively teach Organizational Behavior (OB) concepts at the college level. University instructors have the option to employ several different methods of teaching in order to convey course concepts in the classroom. This article describes the effectiveness that five particular pieces of media can have on active learning in an undergraduate OB class. The films "For Love of the Game," "300," and "12 Angry Men," as well as the episode "All Due Respect" of the television series "The Sopranos" and the episode "Did I Stutter?" of the television series "The Office," will be analyzed. This article provides a background on each piece of media, as well practical suggestions on how to use them to instruct OB.
