Theory into practice: An essay reflecting on six years of teaching evidence-based management to undergraduates

Track: MED

Keywords: management education, evidence-based management

Teaching management is challenging; teaching in work-related and theoretically informed ways corresponds to my specific and challenging goals. Over six years at <redacted> I taught an upper-year, undergraduate class in evidence-based management. This course was designed in relation to a range of practical problems that I believe novice managers are most likely to face. This paper describes the designed features of my course and their theoretical underpinnings, and discusses what I learned.The contribution of this essay is to both motivate and equip others to engage in this powerful and creative form of management education.
