This volume explores two aspects of change within higher education: macro factors governing and influencing the institutional environment, and micro issues taking place within the institutions themselves. The first part of the book examines some of the micro issues that influence business and economics pedagogy. It presents reflections and analyses of teaching roles and values, the enhancement of the student learning experience with technology and real world experiences, and what students want and need to learn. The second part of the book looks at the wider institutional environment of change – the shifts in values, new stakeholders, and a change of focus toward developing skills students need to succeed in business. The book highlights the inter-related nature of these changes and shows that both aspects are important in motivating and inspiring students to be able participants in a 21st century global society. Its focus on interdisciplinarity, curriculum structures, and changing stakeholders helps to analyse the roles and models of business and economics education in addressing the needs of today’s global environment.

Almost thirty years ago a friend involved in the education profession told me that in his estimation much more was "caught" by students outside of classrooms than was "taught" within those hallowed walls. This statement has stuck with me through years of personal schooling, working as a high school teacher, working in management, serving as a management consultant and trainer, and facilitating learning on university campuses across the US, eastern Europe, and Asia. Learning by doing is certainly something most people have experienced. But the fact that there is more opportunity to learn more things today as never before (with knowledge doubling every 20 months) makes learning by doing more complicated. As organizations move to respond to the rapid changes in their environments, people within those organizations must face the uncertainty and ambiguity that comes with such conditions. The one thing most futurists agree on is that the future will be very different than the present. Exponential change has become commonplace. Companies used to worry about redefining their goals and specific describing their place in an industry. Today, in order to survive, they must be constantly addressing the issues inherent in redefining their industries.

Advances in Business Education & Training is a Book Series to foster advancement in the field of Business Education and Training. It serves as an international forum for scholarly and state-of-the-art research and development into all aspects of Business Education and Training. This new volume deals with several aspects of the challenge to design learning in and for a changing world. The first part concerns program development. How to build curricula that are future-proof? Principles to innovate our curricula are identified. It answers the question how we can incorporate the need for change in our thinking about curriculum-development and identify the necessary elements to incorporate in our curricula. The second part focuses on the increasing diversity of students and employees within our schools and organizations, in terms of culture, language, and perception of ability, gifts, and talents. This offers a range of opportunities, but at the same time can possibly jeopardize some processes that are taken for granted. Chapters in this part analyze the processes that play a crucial role in dealing with this diversity and identify educational practices that can help to harvest the potential that lies within this diversity. The third part of this book digs further into the possibilities that are opened up by the implementation of ICT-support in our learning environments. E-learning provides tools to adapt these environments to the needs of an increasingly diverse student-population. In the last part we focus specifically on the workplace and how learning can be designed in such a way that employees are equipped for a shifting workplace. On the one hand it is looked how training can affect performance in the workplace. Does learning transfer to the work environment? On the other hand it is questioned how one can design affordances to trigger learning in the workplace.

Management makes the world go round. This is a strong belief of the authors of this volume. The current tumultuous economic and financial crisis and the intensifying threats caused by climate change are symptoms of a global system that is out of balance. It is increasingly assumed that managers share the responsibility for these developments. After all, management as a major force in the shaping of global economic conditions and social relations make the world go round. At present an alliance of business schools, publishers and certification agencies is rapidly organizing the learning of executives and leaders into a global industry developed by professional managers. But under these circumstances do MBA courses and executive education programs in business schools offer the appropriate learning for current challenges? And can managers learn the lessons of the crisis in these learning environments? Or does the transformation of learning into a global business rather tend to discourage critical thinking and reflective patterns of learning? “Management makes the world go round”. This was also the title of an international conference on management learning , where the authors of this volume presented their ideas, shared their experiences, increased their knowledge and contributed to a fascinating debate in a context with a great professional and cultural diversity. This inspired the group to hold on to this debate and develop the ideas further on. So this book was created and brought into the IAP division of Management Education.

This book focuses on the needs of creatively gifted students and how schools can meet those needs. Creatively gifted students show exceptional levels of creativity. These students may or may not have developed other talents and abilities, yet. Even when their abilities and talents are apparent, the needs of creatively gifted students may not be recognized by current gifted education programs. Regardless of whether a creatively gifted student is included in these programs, schools often inadvertently ignore their special needs. The goal of this book is to share the newest research about the attributes and needs of creatively gifted students and the kinds of programs that best address those special needs. The overarching goal of this book is to share with scholars, educators, and practitioners the latest research on creatively gifted students and the kinds of programs that best meet the unique needs of these students. Through the knowledge and experiences shared here, we hope to help close the gap between what these children need and what they are getting.
