Description

This course is part of the Bachelors’ of Science in Economics and Business Administration with a major in Market and Management Anthropology. The course comprises approx. 100-120 students. The objective of the course is to provide students with competences for in­depth examination of management and organisational communication issues in general and communication strategies to address these issues, in particular. My teaching efforts are targeted on helping the students to demonstrate critical thinking and knowledge in form of good command of the central concepts, processes, models and theories in the course. In addition, I ensure that the students learn the skills of researching an issue relevant for managers and that students are able to report the findings adhering to scientific standards. In this respect, I design learning activities that help students achieve the following SOLO taxonomy goals: a) clearly state a management problem and its relevance and delimitations; b) demonstrate the ability to use a scientific methodology to research the problem and to critically describe and discuss scientific literature relevant to the problem; and c) use problem­solving strategies and critical thinking in changing real life situations and demonstrate understanding of successful staff planning and communication. For ensuring active participation in class discussions and exercises, I designed activities based on group work, case studies, and various experiential assignments (fieldwork) in class and outside of class. The students are evaluated in the form of a 24 hour written open books exam.
