dc.description.abstractDewey’s (1938) theory of “learn by doing” is the underpinning pedagogy for the practica course design discussed in this chapter. Experiential learning and other approaches similar to practica are explored for business curricula. CityU’s instructional design and approach to practica is clearly defined, and research demonstrates how successfully learners are engaged in a relevant manner for real-life application of business management concepts and learned skills. Additional research provides corroboration of a global trend in adopting this method of practical learning.en_US
