Transitions to Practitioner: Redesigning a Third Year Course for Undergraduate Business Student
Bailey, Janis, Oliver, Damian, & Townsend, Keith J. (2007) Transitions to Practitioner: Redesigning a Third Year Course for Undergraduate Business Student. Journal of Management & Organization, 13(1), pp. 65-80.
This paper reports the outcomes from a teaching and learning research project at an Australian University centred on improving a third year course in industrial relations. The paper addresses the cognitive and affective outcomes of the course. Cognitively, students developed a greater understanding of the processes of industrial relations and their interconnectedness; however, research and academic skills were identified as in need of further improvement. Affectively, students responded to the challenges of the course, increasing their confidence and self-efficacy and being better prepared for the transition from student to practitioner. While the course in question was a final year 'capstone' course, the findings are applicable to all who are interested in designing, or redesigning, any business course that attempts to integrate theory and practice.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
