Guiding Principles for a Reflexive Approach to Teaching Organisation Studies
Duarte, Fernanda; Fitzgerald, Anneke
Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice, v3 n1 Article 3 p15-23 2006
In this paper, we discuss a reflexive teaching approach, which may make the field of Organisation Studies more permeable to alternative views and thus more responsive to the complexities of processes unfolding in organisations in the context of a rapidly changing world. We contend that reflection on lived experience complements perspectives that focus on the managerial point of view with other perspectives constitutive of the totality of experience inside work organisations. The combination of reflexive teaching and Experience-Based Learning (EBL) creates an effective approach to develop in students the ability to critically reflect upon, and challenge dominant perspectives and practices in the field of Organisation Studies.
