Fostering Autonomy and Creativity In The Classroom: A Group Exercise
Abstract: I use this activity as a final graded group assignment in my undergraduate Human Resource Selection class, but a revised version of this activity can be used in other Management courses as well. Student teams are given a pre-curated list of recent HR or Selection related articles or reports. Topics are chosen “first come, first served.” The teams have to create an engaging, interactive activity or presentation without using traditional PowerPoint/Prezi methods. This assignment is particularly well-suited for students with different learning styles, and it fosters experiential, group-based learning. Student feedback indicates that this activity is extremely popular and impactful.
