What is a more meaningful learning experience: breadth or depth? Fourth-year students at Humber College find themselves overwhelmed by the workload in a Strategic Managment course. The course is characterized by breadth and depth. More specifically, the breadth consists of fifteen chapters of high-level content. The depth is characterized by three major assignments. For students with little full-time work experience, the course content generally proves useful in providing a systematic approach and illustrations of strategy in practice. Major assignments in the course relate theory to practice. The questions is, what are the most effective constructs to support and measure the learning experience, the breadth of course content, or, the depth of research?
- Assessment of the learning experience in the context of breadth and depth of learning.
- How to research the construct of learning experience.
- Role of learning theory in a baccalaureate course.
