This is the 2009 volume in the Advances in Business Education and Training Book Series. The Series aims to foster advancement in the field and to serve as an international forum for scholarly and state-of-the-art research and development.
This volume offers challenging thoughts on constructing meaningful learning both within the academy and in collaboration with outside stakeholders. It comprises two major sections: research into business education and best practice in business education. The research contributions explore the incorporation of theoretical frameworks and the exploitation of clicker technology in classroom practice, the integration of reflective writing into work placements to support learning, the exposure of ideas about morally leading change and its impact on leadership aspirations, large group business learning, self-theories, goal orientations and achievement motivations, and Chinese students’ perceptions of intercultural competence in tutors. Other research contributions look beyond the business school to explore entrepreneurs’ perceptions of their existing business model. The best practice contributions discuss master thesis supervision, MBA study tours designed to increase global exposure, the use of authentic learning materials in career writing courses, and cross cultural innovations.
