Doctor of Business Administration
We offer our students the option to pursue the Doctor of Business Administration Teaching Certificate taught by Emeritus Regent’s Professor Dr. Harvey Brightman.
The certificate is designed for those who desire to learn how to teach at a university level or improve their teaching skills. Students who finish all 12 modules will receive a teaching certificate to document successful completion of the Teacher Developmental Program at Georgia State University.
The Doctor of Business Administration Teaching Certificate is designed not only to help those who have little or no teaching experience at the university level but also to improve the skills of those who have taught. The course presents empirical-based research on how to improve student learning and student evaluation of instructors. The course maximizes student involvement through integrating lectures and hands-on exercises. There are short homework assignments.
Dr. Brightman has extensive experience in helping university faculty members improve their teaching. He taught Robinson’s doctoral seminar on university-level teaching from 1976-2001. He also has taught at the Decision Sciences Institute’s doctoral consortium for 30 consecutive years. He has served as director of the Master Teacher Program, a 2.5-day intensive workshop, since 1988; more than 1,000 faculty members worldwide have attended. In addition, he has presented more than 100 teaching and learning workshops worldwide for B-schools and universities over the past 15 years. He also has taught AACSB Bridge — a program for business professionals who wish to transition to teaching. Dr. Brightman also has helped implement in-house teaching mentoring programs at many universities.
Offered once per academic year, each Thursday of residency in the months of September, October, and November. See details about the topics covered.
