Course Description

The Teaching the Practice of Management Workshop is a refresher course of early or middle stage career educators in academia with an opportunity to develop pedagogical approaches that inspire the next generation of African leaders, managers, and entrepreneurs. Part one of the programme provides delegates with the opportunity to articulate and discover the characteristics needed to implement their teaching philosophy. Through self-reflection about their past and present pedagogical practices, participants become aware of their personal talents and areas of growth. Developing this awareness starts in building the self-efficacy and pedagogical intent needed to pursue their dreams of becoming great educators.

The second part of the programme supports participants in constructing educational action plans for professional practices. During the construction of their action plans, participants will dialogue with each other in small and large group sessions on the guiding theories of practice in management education, teaching techniques, and how to build teaching practices that transform their classroom and universities. Creating transformative classrooms requires participants to work with each other and conference presenters in either designing or redesigning courses to be relevant within the local context. Lastly, each participant will be provided with an opportunity to present and receive feedback on his or her educational action plans from conference presenters.
