Research Report: “Teaching Business Looking at the Support Needs of Instructors”
The research report linked below was published today by Ithaka S+R.
From an Introductory Blog Post:
Today Ithaka S+R is releasing the first report in a new program focused on supporting teaching practices. In it, we explore the needs of faculty teaching undergraduate business.
Our findings demonstrate how business education could be integral to emerging pedagogical strategies including the adoption of no/low cost resources and increasing emphasis on data and analytics skills training. The report’s recommendations highlight opportunities for various stakeholders–in academic libraries, teaching and learning centers, and third party information and technology providers–to better support business education.

In 2018, Ithaka S+R began a new research program investigating scholars’ undergraduate teaching practices. As a first foray in this program, we looked at the teaching practices and needs of instructors teaching in business and business related disciplines. The project was undertaken collaboratively with research teams at 14 academic libraries in the United States and we thank those institutions and their researchers for partnering with us.
