The purpose of this session is to familiarize instructors with a flexible and modular approach to teaching and the use of textbooks. You’ll learn how modularity allows you to separate the theoretical and practical content of subjects covered, design the order and depth of topics addressed, and adjust technical content to match the mathematical level of the classroom.
This session will address how issues of economic growth and long-run economic development can be integrated into the teaching of Principles of Economics, and how these topics continue to be at the forefront of research. The emphasis will be on the core ideas of the Solow growth model, endogenous technological change, and the role of institutional factors in long-run economic development.
In this webinar, Professor List will showcase some of his recent field experiments that shed light on important questions, including why women earn less money than men, why inner city schools continue to fail, and why people discriminate. He will also discuss how we can use field experiments to make the world a better place.
This presentation discusses two different but related topics. First, some of the major themes in e-commerce for 2017 and beyond, and second, the value of an undergraduate or MBA course or major in E-commerce. These topics are related because opportunities for our e-commerce students depend on investments that firms make in e-commerce technologies and business ventures. Jobs follow investments.
In this presentation, Dr. Randall Boyle discusses the forces increasing demand for tech workers, the gap between supply and demand of tech workers, and the specific technical skills that are being demanded by industry. Overall career development of tech workers and the use of “career guides” to mentor students is discussed. Examples of how applied learning experiences (high impact practices) can be implemented within curricula are given.
This webinar discusses the value of students with a background in MIS by describing the occupational and salary outlook as well as the nature of business investment in IT/IS in 2017. The value of an MIS degree in large part depends on how firms are using IT and systems simply because business investment in IT will drive the employment market both in terms of numbers of jobs, required skill sets, and the salaries being paid. Based on this analysis we can understand how to prepare our students for their first job interviews and their first years on the job.
Looking for ways to give students more hands-on experience in real-world roles and help them link course concepts to on-the-job application? Join the Pearson Operations Management team for an in-depth look at the new, interactive MyLab Operations Management Simulations! Using real-life situations, students evaluate information and engage in decision-making and critical analysis. By receiving real-time, dynamic feedback from stakeholders, students see the actual impact of their choices and can gauge their performance against individual, peer, and system metrics. Easy-to-use and self-contained, these simulations cover the most assigned topics in operations management and allow for easy integration into course curriculum and learning objectives.
For many computer science or engineering students, an ethics course may seem a distraction compared to courses that clearly apply to the major. Getting a student to enthusiastically engage in ethics discussions requires the topics, examples, and scenarios to relate closely to what students have already learned, what they will do in the field, and what is currently in the news. Dr. Henry brings his years of experience in the IT industry to the classroom and talks about applying ethics principles to projects in other courses and the workplace. The goal is to inspire each student to spark change in themselves and in the world outside of the classroom.
