Teaching Human Resources Management: An Experiential ApproachCongratulations to Dr. Julie (J.P.) Palmer, associate professor of human resources in the Walker School of Business & Technology. Dr. Palmer contributed 2 cases to the recently published book, Teaching Human Resource Management; An Experiential Approach,  Edited by Suzanne C. de Janasz and Joanna Crossman. Dr. Palmer’s cases include:

  • Performance-App:  Who to Hire?
  • Performance Evaluation Exercise/Role Play

Teaching Human Resource Management; An Experiential Approach, was inspired by the success of professional development workshops on experiential learning in human resource management held at the Academy of Management Conference. Each year for the past five years, presenters brought their “tried and tested” experiential learning activities to share with academics and practitioners who are looking to expand their repertoire of experiential activities.  This text allows instructors to take advantage of a wide range of “ready-to-go” exercises that have evidence behind them.  The book fills an important gap, by providing practical examples of experiential learning in human resource management.

Dr. Palmer attended the AOM Conference this year in Chicago, where she participated in the presentation that served as a base for the book. Faculty looking for great experiential exercises were invited to “taste” three new-to-you exercises/activities/simulations presented by 25 faculty/HR professionals who teach all over the world.  The innovative session allowed participants to leave with everything needed to immediately use these exercises in the classroom or training.  Participants were able to purchase Teaching HR: An Experiential Approach at a  deeply discounted conference price offered by publisher Edward Elgar.
