The definitive guide to creating and using experiential exercises in the classroom. For anyone interested in continuously improving their teaching practice, this book provides an overview of the theory and empirical evidence for active learning and the use of experiential exercises.

Using a prescriptive model and checklist for creating, adapting or adopting experiential exercises in the classroom, the authors demonstrate evidence-based best practices for each step in the development and use of experiential exercises, including tips, worksheets and checklists to facilitate use of these practices. In addition, the book provides rich examples which illustrate how educators have used this model and practices in their own classrooms, and resources to help find experiential exercises, learn more about effectively using them, and connect with organizations, journals, and people dedicated to the use of experiential exercises in the classroom.

Higher education educators seeking to improve their teaching practice, to increase effectiveness and to learn how to develop and use experiential exercises as well as doctoral students learning how to develop and use experiential exercises will find direction and inspiration in Experiential Exercises in the Classroom.
Critical Acclaim
‘This is the book I’ve been waiting for since the 1970s. Now, adroitly assembled in these authors’ commendably scholarly work, this book makes a timely case for moving experiential teaching to be the dynamic center of business education. Why? Radical changed circumstances for all manner of business and educational practice calls for superior learners.’
– David S. Fearon, Emeritus Professor of Management and Organizational Behavior, Central Connecticut State University, US

‘Experiential Exercises in the Classroom is a definitive resource for any educator devoted to enhancing their engaged teaching practices in business education. This book shares practical wisdom from the authors’ unique backgrounds that is simultaneously grounded in educational history and informed by cutting-edge theory. Beginning to use experiential exercises in a business classroom can be a daunting task, but Mary K. Foster, Vicki Fairbanks Taylor and Jennie L. Walker have provided critically important scaffolding, tips, and reflections that will shorten the learning curve.’
– Kathy Lund Dean, Gustavus Adolphus College, US, Co-Editor, Journal of Management Education and Founding Co-Editor, Management Teaching Review
