Baiting the hook for learning: When learning for learning’s sake is not enough. A novice lecturer’s experiences of managing experiential learning in large groups

This paper discusses my experiences of implementing a flipped classroom approach to lecturing Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM) to a large class, over 420 students. I had planned to utilise an experiential learning style to engage the students by enabling them to construct a wide-ranging understanding of both the theoretical and real world aspects of managing people. However, under expectancy theory, the students perceived the lack of grades for adopting a more ‘hands on’ approach to the experiential learning plan as pointless and unbalanced. Comparisons to outcomes from other modules entrenched this view.
