The Library now has full subscription access to The Business Management Collection, a collection over 950 specially recorded, animated lectures and case studies by more than 850 contributing editors and speakers from commerce, industry, the professions and academia.
New talks are issued every month. Lectures and case studies, or extracts from them, are easy to integrate and embed in courses to enrich the teaching and learning experience. They are all compatible with Moodle and particularly appropriate for distance and blended learning courses and flipped classroom education.
The collection is divided into six broad subject areas – Finance, Accounting & Economics; Global Business Management; Management Leadership & Organizations; Marketing & Sales; Strategy and Technology & Operations. Lecturers and presenters are leading academic experts and practitioners from commerce and industry.
Content is presented in four different formats (click on the hyperlink to view example):
- Traditional format lectures with high quality graphics. The entire lecture as well as extracts can be embedded in course notes and online learning systems.
- Case Study Interviews. They are designed to explore how different participants in commerce and industry, from start-up entrepreneurs to large corporation executives, confront the challenges they encounter. Additionally, all videos are accompanied by suggested topics for discussion and individual and group projects.
- Extended form case studies. These accounts of real world experience describing what was done, how, when and with what consequences have proved especially useful in preparing students for in-class discussions.
- Bite-size case studies. These short descriptions of real world commercial activities come with suggested topics for consideration and discussion. Subscribers have found that they stimulate thinking and assist is developing the ability of students to question, analyse and appraise. They are often set as pre-classroom preparation and in-class discussion
