The challenge and promise of experiential pedagogies in high-enrolment management classes

View File

This session is a facilitated discussion (using whole group and small break out groups) on using experiential learning techniques in large management classes, particularly where lecturing is an institutional norm and class sizes can exceed 150 students. We will explore the pedagogical, logistical, structural, and institutional challenges instructors face when introducing non-lecture pedagogies into large lecture theatres/classrooms, using a taxonomy of instructional features that are critical to incorporating experiential and active learning activities into lecture-based classes. We draw on the (sparse) literature along with our own experiences and those of the session participants to discuss possible solutions, and facilitate a break-out group activity using our taxonomy to address those challenges. In a whole-group debrief, we share ‘lessons learned’ from the small group activity.
