Abstract

Many of the central principles of professional degrees taught to HRIR and business school students - putting theory into practice, knowing your customers, benchmarking against best practices, and using diverse toolkits for problem solving - are equally valid for the practice of teaching HRIR and business courses. Learning theory needs to be put into practice in the professional classroom, instructors must understand students and their diverse learning styles, teaching practices should be benchmarked against best practices, and instructors need to develop teaching toolkits for creating effective courses. As teachers of professional students, we should practice what we preach.
