Professor Myles Bassell utilizes a variety of learning-by-doing tools including online simulations (Interpretive Simulations) and case studies (Harvard Business Publishing) that require his students to apply the course concepts and make decisions.
Students are given an opportunity to strengthen and demonstrate their skills in the following areas: critical thinking, ethical reasoning, global awareness, communication, leadership, information literacy, and quantitative reasoning. Professor Bassell’s assurance of learning (AoL) assignments are graded using rubrics which measure the extent to which the Koppelman School of Business learning goals are being achieved.
Professor Bassell’s courses focus on experiential learning and his Show and Tell pedagogy. He doesn’t just tell students about the concepts, but also shows the students how the concepts are applied. He utilizes polling (Poll Everywhere) in class to engage all students in discussions.
