Event details Event cancelled
Professor Chris Steyaert will discuss the possibilities of smaller and larger creative interventions and playful practices that shape (differently) the learning process of participants/students.
The question “what can we do (anew) in a classroom?” will be related to the renewed debate on the role of the Humanities and Social Sciences in management education, and the possibilities this gives for considering “new” educational philosophies and experimenting with pedagogical practices.
During the seminar, Professor Steyaert will give examples of educational interventions in and beyond the classroom that critically yet creatively play with the possibilities of the learning space and that can open up for a discussion on the “play-paradigm” in (management) education.
Chris Steyaert is Professor for Organizational Psychology at the University of St Gallen, Switzerland. He has published in international journals and books in the area of organizational theory and entrepreneurship.
His current interests concern creativity, multiplicity (diversity) and reflexivity in organizing change, intervention and entrepreneurship. At the University of St. Gallen, he has been teaching courses on creativity in relation to the field of organizational theory/behavior and entrepreneurship.
For instance, he teaches yearly a masterclass on “Creativity and Entrepreneurship”, has taught “Creativity in Organizations” in the full-time MBA, and has been offering elective courses such as “Performing entrepreneurship” or “Organizing museums in the entrepreneurial city”, where aesthetic forms such as drama, dance, design and display have been applied.
