Chapter 7: How to invigorate group presentations
In the teaching of business subjects, we want our students to apply the concepts and theories studied to analyse real-world scenarios and policy issues. One common way to do this is to ask the students to work in small groups to prepare and then deliver an oral presentation on an assigned case. I have used this approach extensively when teaching competition (antitrust) policy to final year economics undergraduates. Although this approach worked well, this chapter describes how I was able to invigorate the group presentations by recasting them into a debate format. This change transformed the student learning experience and made the material more fun to teach. It is evident how much more engaged the students have become and it has led to significant improvements in the quality of the presentations.
