This timely Handbook investigates the many perspectives from which to reconsider teaching and learning within business schools, during a time in which higher education is facing challenges to the way teaching might be delivered in the future.

Bringing together a diverse range of expert contributors, this Handbook fills gaps in current knowledge and research, whilst expanding and exploring new fields. Topics covered include the use and value of learning technologies, leadership education and continuous professional development of research-based teachers. Crucially, the Handbook considers how faculty at all levels of seniority will be forced to challenge their own modus operandi in designing and delivering teaching. This is especially important during and in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, where blended learning should be carefully assessed before it is adopted as part of any course design.

Offering both practical suggestions and cutting-edge research into the field, this Handbook will be a key resource for academics, practitioners and students in business and management education who wish to consolidate their teaching and learning and further understand the broader issues surrounding it.
Critical Acclaim
‘The modernization of student learning experiences has never been more pressing than post-COVID. This thought-provoking book provides a plethora of perspectives on how to achieve better and more modern learning, through teams, through technology, through cases and through the continuous professional development of educators. This volume is a useful Handbook both for educational practitioners and for researchers in educational research and development. Highly recommended!’
– Peter Møllgaard, Maastricht University School of Business and Economics, the Netherlands

‘Business education has experienced significant transformation in the 21st century, and more recently through the pressures on business schools to adapt to blended learning practices during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It includes contributions from some leading scholars and across a range of important topics, including learning environments, technologies, CPD and research-led teaching.’
– Stuart J. Barnes, King''s College London, UK

– Martyna Sliwa, University of Essex, UK and Co-Editor of Management Learning

‘The book Handbook of Teaching and Learning at Business Schools: A Practice-Based Approach is a timeous and much needed book targeted at teaching faculty, administrators, and management of business schools across the globe. The book covers key issues business schools, irrespective of their geographic location, grapple with in ensuring an optimal learning experience for students. The book provides transformational perspectives of learning and gives insight into contemporary learning environments. The section on the use and value of learning technologies cannot come at a more opportune time. The book also deals with aspects related to the teaching and assessing in the business school classroom, leadership education and professional development of teaching faculty. It concludes with a section addressing the translation of research into teaching, work integrated teaching and how to harness the synergies between research, teaching, and engagement.

– Robert D. Austin, Ivey Business School, London, Canada

‘A timely and refreshing text!! Targeted at those who are eagerly seeking new ways of teaching and engaging students in challenging contexts. This book emphasises co-production of education, the importance of involving key stakeholders in the learning experience while ensuring leadership and professionalism remain core. This is a “must-read” for Business School faculty.’
– Julian Gould-Williams, Cardiff University, UK

‘Business schools are in a unique position to both affect and effect change – socially, pedagocially, and developmentally. The perspectives on transformation, which highlight the many advantages and challenges which lie ahead, are rich with theoretical and practical examples. Consistently offering a student-centric approach, while recognising the demands placed on educators, is a delicate balancing act, but one which is clearly readily achieved here.’
– Juliette Overland, University of Sydney Business School, Australia
