Friday Factoid: Continuous Faculty Improvement at HBS

Harvard Business School (HBS) is well known for using the case method, through which virtually all of the school’s classes are taught. Rather than rest on its laurels with regard to teaching the case method, HBS faculty members work hard to stay at the top of their respective games. In addition to the school’s tradition of faculty-to-faculty mentoring, in 2004, HBS established the C. Roland Christensen Center for Teaching and Learning (named for the late HBS professor) to promote and support teaching excellence and innovation. The center conducts research on pedagogical innovation and teaching effectiveness related to gender and diversity issues, and helps faculty members refine their teaching styles and techniques. The center also offers professors classroom observations and the opportunity to do pre-class planning, receive within-term troubleshooting/post-term reflection and conduct case and course development.
