A volume in Research in Management Education and Development Series Editors: Charles Wankel, St. John's University Over the last decade, we have been witnessing a dramatic contrast between the CEO as a superhero and CEO as an antihero. The new challenge in business education is to develop responsible global leaders. Relatively little is known, however, about how management educators can prepare future leaders to cope effectively with the challenge of leading with integrity in a multicultural space. This volume is authored by a spectrum of international experts with a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives. It suggests directions that business educators might take to reorient higher education to transcend merely equipping people and organizations to greedily proceed, with dire effects on the preponderance of people, nations, our planet and the future. The book is a collection of ideas and concrete solutions with regards to how morality should be taught in a global economy. In the first part, the editors present reasons why management education for integrity makes up an important challenge in an intercultural environment. This book is an overview of a spectrum of approaches to developing moral character in business students in this epoch of dynamic technologies and globalization. Experts share approaches to sensitizing learners to integrity and its opposite in a wide variety of international cases and examples. The impact of colliding cultural differences on management education will be also parsed. With in-depth discussions of the influence of such factors as gender, ethnicity and academic performance the book looks comparatively at the implications for instructors in various cultural contexts. A wide variety of teaching approaches are explained with lengthy examples including ones leveraging humanities and storytelling.
A volume in Research in Management Education and Development Series Editors: Charles Wankel, St. John's University Our current students are digital natives, born into a world of widespread online sharing. Aligning the technologies we use in our courses with their skills and approaches to collaborative learning is an opportunity we should take. The new media share text, images, audio and video material rapidly and interactively. This volume will provide an overview of these new social media including Skype, YouTube, Flickr, blogging, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Examples and cases of how instructors around the world are meaningfully incorporating them into their management, marketing, and other business courses are provided. One of the more robust trends is the use of three-dimensional immersive virtual world interfaces for teaching and learning. The leading one is Second Life. Examples of the use of Second Life in business courses will be discussed. The use of wikis to foster collaborative development of course related material by learners will be presented with case examples. Faculty members are co-creators of course content with their learners. Among the topics covered is how faculty members can be supported in their deployment of social media projects and course structures. How social media can enable the structuring of course activities involving students, prospective students, alumni, employers, businesspersons, and others in rich sharing and support with each other will be discussed. Indeed seeing courses as networking venues beyond learning forums will be parsed.
