Teacher vs. Learner Responsibility in Management Education

Author

  • JS Armstrong

    (The Wharton School - University of Pennsylvania)

Abstract

A literature review suggested that behavioral changes occur more rapidly when the learner assumed responsibility. Natural learning, an approach to help learners assume responsibility, was compared with the traditional strategy in seven field experiments. It produced more than twice as many long-term behavioral changes. It was superior also for attitude change, but not for gains in knowledge.
