Management Education (MED)
Sunday June 13th, 10:30am
Dr. Hartt spent 20+ years as a manager, director and business owner before deciding to return to school. The reason: he met too many people with B.Com. or MBA degrees who didn’t remember basic things he knew they were taught. As a result Management Education has been very important in his academic pursuits, sometimes it’s a CMS study of what is taught but more often its putting the real world into the classroom. Whether it’s the cases he’s written for textbooks, his own use and to share with friends or the “Build your own Case” approach he has taken to many courses; every aspect of Chris’ pedagogy reflects a need to have students use what we want them to learn… 5, 10, 25 years after they graduate. Covid brings new changes because there’s a Pandemic in the Disco.
