Abstract

Are the students that you teach truly engaged in the course work they do, exhibiting a spirit of inquiry and finding this work intrinsically rewarding? Or are your classes often populated by those who seem to view business education instrumentally, focusing on their eventual job placement outcomes, rather than by those who have a passion for business? If these questions resonate with your recent teaching experiences, then Shop Class as Soulcraft can provide a thought-provoking perspective on the reasons why.

Keywords: teaching, strategy, value creation
