HOW TO ENGAGE STUDENTS AND MAKE THEM ACTIVE: EXAMPLES OF GOOD PRACTICE FROM BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND MANAGEMENT CLASSES

L. Klimplová

Dalarna University (SWEDEN)
King (1993) in her often-cited work “From sage on the stage to guide on the side” describes the shift from the traditional classrooms where professors lecture and students listen and take notes towards classrooms where students are actively involved in processing information and relating them to their previous experience and knowledge and making sense of it. Students get involved and use their higher level cognitive skills to analyse, synthesise and evaluate the information received rather passively receiving and memorising it. As emphasised by many authors, students’ active participation and engagement is critical for their deep learning and understanding.
The aim of this paper is to present several practical examples of involving students in classes in Business Administration and Management, such as think-pair-share, experimental exercises, “send-problem” exercises, gapped outlines of lectures, learning by teaching, but also an example how to get students engaged in improving courses via the structured group feedback method.
