Teaching

Mission. Our teaching is focused on making our studentscritical thinkers and successful problem solvers. We expect our students not to take things for granted but to question them. We want our students to be able to leverage concepts from research on information technology, management, and organization in order to solve practical problems. Through the process of solving them, students are expected to recognize limits in theoretical reasoning and critically reflect on the latter. To facilitate reaching these aims, our teaching makes substantive use of action-oriented learning tools as well as eLearning. Figure 1 summarizes our teaching mission.
