Handbook on Experiential Learning and seeking transversality of international business across disciplines
Invitation to contribute a chapter to a Palgrave edited Handbook on: Experiential Learning and seeking transversality of international business across disciplines
In 2014 “The Handbook of Experiential Learning In International Business”, was published -aiming to be a one-stop source for international managers, business educators and trainers who seek to either select and use an existing experiential learning project, or develop new projects and exercises of this kind.
Based on the success of the book, it was proposed by the publisher to have a follow up edition. This call is look for contributions for this new Handbook.
We have observed how international business as a discipline and a profession is becoming more transversal and it has been incorporated in business and non-business programs around the world. This edition aims to review theoretical and empirical approaches of experiential learning, and its role increasing the effectiveness in teaching and learning of international business, and also, in the incorporation of international business related concepts and competences in business and non-business programs.
Same as in the first edition, we are aiming to have two parts.
The first part will provide an updated overview of the theories on enhancing teaching and learning in International Business through the use of experiential learning projects.
Second, specific applications of experiential learning in International Business and related fields. The idea is that each chapter of the book will talk about one experiential learning project (e.g., large-scale international collaboration projects, joint projects with international businesses, designing experiential learning activities), simulations, experiential activities or other experiential projects you use in your IB-related courses, or to incorporate IB concepts and competencies in business and non-business related courses.
Each co-author will describe in detail the hands-on project(s) he/she uses to improve learning in his/her IB-related courses or training programs, project background and history, challenges, best practices, and suggestions for future IB educators who may want to incorporate experiential learning in their courses. A chapter can describe a big project that covers entire semester, a small one that spans only a few days, or an exercise or series of exercises that take only a few minutes to a few hours to run. The project can also be part of a formal course or training program, or be unrelated to formal courses and offered as an extra-curricular option for the students (competitions, internships, etc.), as long as the activity is experiential and contributes to learning IB-related concepts.
The handbook is aimed to be a one-stop source for educators and trainers who seek to either select and use an existing experiential learning project, or develop new projects and exercises of this kind.
