Adaptive Practice

Video cases connect managerial theory to the real world.

Instructors and students can explore a collection of video cases from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. All videos are accompanied by teaching notes with starting points for lectures or class discussions to help learners draw connections between the content they’re learning, the competencies they’re developing in management, and real events in the business world.

Updated video lectures from the authors encourage student engagement.

New author video lectures bring management principles and course concepts to life with a “storytelling” style to promote active learning. These videos cover the basics so instructors can maximize class time with interactive activities like team-oriented assignments and discussions.

New and refreshed exercises boost reflection and critical thinking skills.

Each chapter’s learning dashboard includes a What to Look for Inside guide that points out the many features in Management, 5th Edition that provide students with important opportunities for self-reflection, active learning, and critical thinking. Management Is Real sections include real issues, events, and people to build awareness and stimulate personal reflection, while Skills Make You Valuable sections build management competencies through individual and team learning activities.

Strengthened focus on career readiness gives students tools for professional success.

The course’s unique pedagogical approach not only helps students to understand and apply the principles of management, but also to develop tangible skillsets to succeed in the workplace through interactive online self-assessments, experiential exercises like Manage a Critical Incident, and team projects to boost collaboration and other required management skills.
