Doctor of Business Administration
Many Executive Doctorate in Business Administration (EDBA) students and alumni express an interest in transitioning from industry to academia; however, most of our students have little or no teaching experience at the university level. Also many B-schools are seeking working professionals with executive experience and a masters or doctoral degree to serve as adjunct faculty. Thus this year we are also opening up the program to EMBA’s after September 1, 2020. This course presents empirical-based research on how to improve student learning and student evaluation of instructor scores. The course maximizes student involvement through integrating lectures and hands-on exercises. There will be short homework assignments.
Participation in this course is not part of the EDBA Program and is voluntary. The class will be limited to 20 students or alumni from the EDBA and EMBA Programs.
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.
The course will be taught by Dr. Harvey Brightman. Dr. Brightman has extensive experience in helping university faculty members improve their teaching. He taught the doctoral seminar on university-level teaching at the RCB from 1976-2001. He has also taught at the Decision Science Institute’s doctoral consortium a session on college teaching for 30 consecutive years. He is the director of the Master Teacher Program, a 2 1/2-day intensive workshop, from 1988-to the present. Over 1,000 faculty members worldwide have attended. In addition, he has presented over 100 teaching and learning workshops worldwide for B-schools and universities over the past fifteen years. He has also taught in the AACSB Bridge program - a program for business people who wish to transition to teaching. In addition, he has helped to 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.
