WOOD, J.A., 2016. Enhancing the learning experience: the benefits of applying Jesuit pedagogy to business and economics modules. Jesuit Higher Education: A Journal, 5(2): 5.
This paper identifies key characteristics of Jesuit pedagogy, expounds why this form of pedagogy is relevant not only to religious students but to all learners, and explores the benefits of applying these active learning teaching methods to business and economics courses. Teaching effectiveness is reviewed before and after a Jesuit pedagogical augmentation made to a statistics module. Analysing a case study approach, the resulting evidence is strong support for the inclusion of Jesuit pedagogical foundations that are frequently absent from non-humanities based modules.
