Using Feature Films as the Primary Instructional Medium to Teach Organizational Behavior
Smith, Gerald W.
Journal of Management Education, v33 n4 p462-489 2009
The use of film to assist with teaching various theoretical concepts has been integrated into the classroom for many years. However, the use of films has been primarily as a supplementary material to the typical textbook instruction. This article bridges the gap in the literature and discusses one approach whereby feature films were incorporated into an organizational behavior class as the primary instructional medium. Student exam results, coupled with their in-class discussion and evaluation comments, reflected great success with this approach. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
