Integrating Experiential Learning and Cases in International Business
Ramburuth, Prem; Daniel, Shirley
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v22 n1 p38-50 2011
In no other discipline is experiential learning more important than in the complex field of International Business (IB), which aims to prepare students to work and manage across political, economic, national, and sociocultural boundaries. This paper discusses various types of experiential learning activities and approaches to IB teaching, and expands on how the case method can be more effectively used to facilitate student learning and increase engagement. Leveraging class diversity and providing opportunities for "virtual exchanges" in the case-based approach can significantly enhance the development of intercultural competence. Resources for finding cases, developing one's own cases, and publishing them in peer-reviewed outlets are also provided. (Contains 2 tables.)
