Dilemmas of a Newly Recruited Academic Qualified Professor: A Case
Agrawal, Anand
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v18 n2 p176-191 Jun 2015
This case describes the situation of a newly recruited academic professor who volunteered to teach a course on Research Methods to first-term MBA students in a practitioner-oriented case method Business School. Research Methods is a unique course due to its relevance not only in business but also across all graduate programs. Instructional and managerial concerns highlighted in the case relate to new faculty member orientation, course allocation, and contrary teaching philosophies of different professors in a school that are relevant for educational leaders. The need to analyze this case from the perspectives of both the professor and the dean makes it not only interesting but also useful for management teams in higher education institutes that are responsible for change management.
