Innovations in Teaching Business Ethics and Business & Society

This symposium discusses the challenges of teaching in a global environment, to students of different languages and nationalities, using cases and materials that have an Anglo-Saxon bias, and to extremely large classes that require innovative techniques, including use of social media. The symposium also addresses the value of blending traditional teaching approaches with ways to stimulate student interaction, to address the most vital ethical issues in the context of the latest cases. It also addresses ways of integrating ethics and sustainability into traditional functional courses, along with the need to adopt new courses and programs in the face of declining enrollments in traditional MBA programs. The symposium also addresses novel techniques and exercises to enhance student interaction and individual accountability, through the use of case debates and projects.
