Please, I need you to participate…

I was observing some classes this week and wondering why some students

feel safe enough to share more than they should

and

why other students sit quietly in the back.

I know the quiet ones have so much depth and important things to say. But, how do we get them to open up?

These are some of the ways I have noticed students more willing to participate in class.

Business Ethics Piece

This is a piece of my Business Ethics Curriculum.

The students are reading

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.

The first day of class students formed teams and created fictitious companies.

The students must now assume a role in the company and interact with The 5 Dysfunctions book.

8 classroom hours will be spent on the book.

We will use activities from

Babson’s Giving Voice to Values and

Gamestorming,

as well.

We will then return to other learning strategies.

Business Ethics Final

I have been trying to figure out what the ultimate goal of my Business Ethics course should be. I have taught this course several times and am looking for a guiding project to thread through the entire course.

I have a new idea.

I am going to form teams and have the teams create the Most Ethical Business. I will use the same content I have used in the past- textbook, case studies, 5 Dysfunctions of a Team (book).

But since most business students think businesses are by nature unethical, it will be up to them to create an ethical company. Let the adventure begin…
