Dialectical Inquiry as an Instructional Heuristic in Organization Theory and Design.
Dehler, Gordon E.; Welsh, M. Ann
Journal of Management Education, v17 n1 p79-89 Feb 1993
A strategy for teaching undergraduate organization theory and design uses dialectical inquiry (thesis-antithesis-synthesis) and involves students actively in classroom learning. Concepts are introduced through dichotomies as typically introduced in texts; discussion elaborates grey areas. Case analysis by this method conveys the often ambiguous and paradoxical nature of management. (Author/MSE)
