Innovative learning projects in management education and
development are discussed in the frame of cutting-edge theory and
salient practice. Learning projects are defined as educationally
directed activities involving out-of-classroom action settings
complemented by student and/or instructor directed reflection on the
links between theory and practice. Chapters are grounded in relevant
theory, empirical research and examples of best practice for a wide
variety of real world management education projects. Contexts
include both university and corporate-based management education
and development. Topics span action learning, experiential learning,
student consulting projects, service learning, reflective practice,
internships as learning vehicles, and web-based learning through
projects. Extensive opportunities are being recognized for more
tightly and productively integrating the normal work of managers
with their education.
