Teaching Principles of Management through Experiential and Service Learning
Furutan, Omid
Research in Higher Education Journal, v26 Oct 2014
Management faculties often use cases, simulations, and research projects to achieve learning objectives in the Principles of Management class. This class typically aims to introduce students to the topics of "planning, organizing, coordinating, staffing, directing, budgeting, controlling, and evaluating functions of management; leadership roles and styles, and the human aspects of management" (Furutan, 2012). This paper describes a unique approach to teaching the above topics through an experiential and service learning project. Student teams select small local businesses with which to work during the semester and learn their weekly topics through interviews and observations of their selected businesses. This paper describes the class in detail and discusses some of the challenges with experiential and service learning projects.
