Using Conflict-Management Surveys to Extricate Research out of the "Ivory Tower": An Experiential Learning Exercise
Anakwe, Uzoamaka P.; Purohit, Yasmin S.
Journal of Management Education, v30 n3 p501-524 2006
Management scholars have encouraged newer approaches to management education combining cognitive lessons with active experiential activities. This article describes how surveys, originally intended for collecting conflict-management data, can be introduced in the classroom to catalyze a deeper understanding of conflict. This article exemplifies advances in management education paradigms using a data collection instrument to promote experiential classroom learning. It focuses on helping educators step out of their responsibilities as researchers and build bridges between their research and teaching roles. The article provides all information vis-a-vis the conflict-management activity: the survey, exercise guidelines, and detailed debriefing notes including PowerPoint supplements. (Contains 1 figure.)
