NEW BOOK TO INSPIRE STUDENTS

 

Innovations in teaching and learning are at the forefront of work at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside - and now two lecturers have contributed to a major new publication designed to help teachers get the best from their students.

 

Mark Teale and John Flynn from the Department of Business Strategy both have chapters in the book ‘Inspiring Students’ to be published in the summer by Kogan Page.

 

Mr Teale’s contribution concerns a project initially funded by BP which helps students learn more effectively by developing their own learning skills.

 

“The design for the unit was based on established learning theories,” said Mr Teale, who joined the university in 1993. “The impetus for the design came partly from recognition of the resource constraints on teaching, but mainly from my interest in questioning the students’ learning processes.”

 

The unit tries to simulate the decision-making process and includes a model which show the effects of decisions.

 

Mr Teale, Mr Flynn and two other lecturers from the Hull Business School are all involved in writing a book about management decision-making due for publication next year.
