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…
