PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING: TEACHING PROJECT
MANAGEMENT WHILE SOLVING REAL ORGANIZATIONAL
Kloppenborg, Timothy J.; Xavier U.;
Baucus, Melissa S.; Xavier U.;
Over the past several years, we have developed and refined a problem-based learning approach in our project management courses that empowers student teams to solve real problems in local nonprofit organizations. We identify some of the key characteristics of problem-based learning and explain how our course design addresses each characteristic. We discuss our course design in detail, including: a) our course objectives that specify the knowledge and skills students will have at the end of the course; b) how we solicit and select projects from local nonprofit organizations; c) the deliverables our student teams must accomplish on their projects--leaving it to the students to determine how to achieve the deliverables; d) the self-directed learning process students use; e) our role as facilitators rather than content experts and how we address some of the challenges associated with this role; and f) the process for assessing student learning. One of the key contributions of our paper involves the assessment process since we used experienced project managers to develop the assessment or rating instrument, including the rating scale, criteria for judging the deliverables, and the weights or priority given to each of the judging criteria. We explain the elaborate process used to develop the assessment instrument and how we train and use experienced judges each semester to assess the student teams' projects and determine the winner of the best project award.

CROSSING THE CHASM: CREATING INTEGRATIVE LEARNING
Beechler, Schon L.; Columbia U.;
Yorks, Lyle; Columbia U.;
This paper rests on the premise that executive education programs are potential laboratories for pioneering innovative curriculum designs that integrate adult learning theory with professional development. We bring together two literatures; 1. adult learning theory and 2. management education; and apply their insights to the design of executive education programs. Based on these literatures, and using our own experiences in program development and design, we provide an integrative learning community model and demonstrate the dimensions of the model using a longitudinal case study.

DEVELOPING DIALOGUE SKILL: A QUALITATIVE INVESTIGATION OF AN ONLINE COLLABORATION EXERCISE
Eveleth, Daniel M.; U. of Idaho;
Baker-Eveleth, Lori Jo; U. of Idaho;
Business managers, cross-functional team members, and boundary spanners are often faced with situations that require the application of dialogue skill. Dialogue is a process of inquiry that leads to the creation of shared meaning or shared understanding among parties. Previous work has suggested that dialogue skill can be developed using specifically designed online-collaborative activities. This work MED Paper Abstracts--15
describes the qualitative investigation of one such activity and web-based software that can be combined to create an environment for developing dialogue skill. Keywords: Dialogue, Collaboration, On-line learning
