Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannEncouraging student connections to the “real world” is at the heart of pedagogical creativity. I was fortunate this month to learn about two approaches, one at the Darden School of Business (University of Virginia), the other at Umeå School of Business and Economics, both members of GBSN.

GBSN’s upcoming Annual Conference in Manila is all about disruptive innovation in education. Darden and Umeå will be there. I am looking forward to discussions between some of the business schools that use these techniques and schools of the developing world that may find them useful.

New Research Sheds Light on Positives of MOOCs

Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) have been a highly debated topic of conversation from their inception in 2008. Many have argued on both sides about how effective they really are, as well as criticized the percentage of people that use them.
