There Goes My Hero! A Roundtable On The Advantages and Disadvantages of Using Superheroes In The Classroom.

This lively roundtable session will bring together participants who would like to learn more about how we have used everyday heroes and superheroes in human resource management and organizational behavior classes as an engagement strategy. In the Fall semester (2021), students of an Introduction to Human Resource Management (HRM) class were assigned a group project where they had to pick a group of heroes (either superheroes or those performing heroic work). The goal was to get students to apply every facet of HRM to their chosen heroes. The advantages and disadvantages of this approach will be explored along with some specific activities, projects and rubrics that have been used. Participants will have the opportunity to share their own experiences in using heroes in the classroom. Participants will share their own best practices with the presenters and other participants.
