The age-old dilemma for academia—how best to teach—really is about how best to learn. To innovate, business schools must accept and embrace change in their management education pedagogies, without losing sight of their distinctive methods and traditions.
The Global Colloquium on Participant-Centered Learning (GloColl) is a two-session program that seeks to build a global community of faculty members who are committed to participant-centered learning through innovative teaching and course design. Developed by Harvard Business School (HBS) senior faculty members, this invitation-only program aims to help management educators improve their effectiveness by learning from their teaching.
On-Campus Session, HBS Campus, Boston, Massachusetts (U.S.)
The program's first seven-day session will be held on the HBS campus.
Topics covered in the first session include:
- Introducing participant-centered learning for master in business administration (MBA) programs
- Teaching the case method
- Reviewing course and module design, development, and refinement
- Incorporating participant-centered learning methods into conventionally taught curricula
The program's second three-day session will take place in two locations. You can choose to attend the city most convenient for your schedule. This session delves more deeply into case writing methods and techniques as you continue to develop relationships with colleagues around the world.
Topics covered in the second session include:
- Recapping and refreshing GloColl concepts
- Reviewing case development techniques such as selecting field sites and conducting interviews
- Mastering case writing and teaching note preparation
- Addressing GloColl challenges specific to students at your institution
- Tailoring changes in management education to meet your school's needs
This program is intended for faculty members who are positioned to play major roles in leading institutional change and instructional development within their respective institutions over the next decade.
GloColl is developed to examine the changing needs of educators in various regions throughout the world. The focus is on teaching and course development, as well as on the efforts required to introduce participant-centered learning methods into more traditionally taught curricula.
