Event description

Description

MGTS1301 provides students with an introductory learning experience in business management by critically exploring management principles, concepts, models, and challenges from both a national and international perspective. Through this exploration of management, students develop an understanding of the broad areas of planning, organising, leading, and controlling, spanning classical to contemporary approaches to management thinking. The course runs as interactive lectures, team-based tutorials, and experiential learning through the use of a computer simulation.

We run a three hour experiential learning activity for up to 100 students that uses a computer simulation, which in itself is a challenge to organise and run. Specifically, the timetabling and organisation of this activity has developed over time to the extent that we can get over 700 students through the simulation in one day. However, students tell us that they enjoy the activity and the linking of it to assessment.

Gemma Irving is the Course Coordinator and Lecturer. Gemma’s teaching expertise is in management and strategy, with a focus on introducing first-year undergraduate business students to evidence-based management and the idea of management as a profession. She is passionate about creating classroom environments where students are able to learn from their own experiences and from interaction with their peers.

Geoff Greenfield has a PhD in information systems and has been in academic roles for 15 years. He recently completed his Graduate Certificate in Higher Education. He believes our role as educators is to provide an environment where students can develop and learn, not only the hard skills relevant to their discipline, but also the soft skills that employers are looking for in the business market. Geoff played a crucial role in the adoption and development of the Everest Simulation in MGTS1301, and will coordinate this year’s sessions.

The course will be open for practical sessions (experiential learning using a computer simulation) from Saturday 11 August to Friday 17 August.
