Teaching Outside Four professors share their thoughts on transforming the business classroom —and how they hope business schools will support their efforts. by Tricia Bisoux the Box B usiness professors don't need to be told that their classrooms are changing. In most cases, they're the ones making the changes. Whether they're creating multimedia supple- ments, designing memorable lesson plans, or leading global excursions, business faculty have seen their traditional teaching roles expand to include men- toring students, facilitating consulting projects, and inventing completely new approaches to education. Four such professors have spent years cultivat- ing their philosophies and strategies for the business school classroom. They're more than willing to share their favorite lessons, and their students are eager to describe the impact these lessons have had on their educations. From their descriptions, it's clear that all four view their classrooms as environments for inter- action, creativity, exploration, and reflection. More important, they view themselves as innovators, with their schools as their biggest supporters and their stu- dents as their greatest motivation. 22 BizEd JULY/AUGUST 2007
