"What Is a Sociologist Doing in a School of Management?" Reflections on the Use of Sociological Concepts in Management Education
Duarte, Fernanda
Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice, v6 n1 p1-10 2009
Written from an auto-biographic perspective, this paper is based on reflections and insights arising from a journey of adaptation by a "sociologist-teaching-in-a-school-of-management". These reflections unveil the relevance to management studies of four interrelated conceptual tools: critical thinking, reflection, reflexivity and the sociological imagination. Examples of scaffolding activities and class exercises are provided throughout the paper to illustrate the usefulness of these concepts in management teaching. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
