|Title||Designing and Delivering Pluralistic Management Learning for the Digital Era|
The aim of this work is to consider the idea of pluralism as applied within curriculum design of a given case in order to be able to determine the usefulness that this has within management learning in the digital era. The work explores what is meant by pluralism within the context of management practice and it seeks to determine how pluralistic curriculum design defines the scope of content within a particular management module. It also seeks to understand how pluralistic management education might enable both theoretical and practical opportunities for learning and the enhancement of capabilities. An action research approach is adopted during the development of a management module that considers and attempts to define the characteristics of a pluralistic framework of management capability as a critical element in the curriculum design process. Additionally, as the module being designed will be delivered to 600+ students it seeks to determine the opportunities for the utilisation of digital technology in the delivery of this module and its efficiency benefits.
