Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This case story describes how interactive group work was used as a pedagogical method to develop first year undergraduate students’ awareness and appreciation of corporate responsibility. The University of Huddersfield Business School signed up to PRME in 2012 and steps are being undertaken to integrate Principle 3 into the School’s curriculum, mainly via a review of ‘responsibility’ across the teaching and learning strategy of the School. The case story is related to a first year undergraduate module titled Contemporary Issues in Business. The cohort of students mostly comprise of home (UK) students as well as international students, from Asia, Africa and Europe. The module aims to develop firstly an awareness of the ethical and social responsibility issues related to business practices and secondly, enable students to engage critically with these issues, and develop viable business solutions to resolve the issues.
