Abstract

This paper identifies key characteristics of Jesuit pedagogy, expounds why Jesuit pedagogy is relevant not only to religious students but to all learners, and explores the benefits of applying these active learning teaching methods to business and economics courses. We review teaching effectiveness before and after a Jesuit pedagogical augmentation to a statistics module. Analysing a case study approach, the resulting evidence is strong support for the inclusion of Jesuit pedagogical foundations that are traditionally absent from non-humanities based modules.
