Scouting 101: Methods of World Scouting in Management Education / Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche / The BAS in Supervision and Management program has incorporated innovative learning strategies and contents from different industries and organizations. They include corporations, government, academia, nonprofits, churches, and youth groups. Managing people requires values and methods that could come from other areas beyond the workplace and traditional content developed for management education. This study takes the risk of exploring outside-academia learning strategies and the essential characteristics of the World Scouting Movement and its contribution, not only to the education of young people, but also to the education of potential managers or leaders outside Scouting, with emphasis in the workplace. 22th International Conference on College Teaching and Learning.

Reducing Information and Communications Overload in Management Online Education
Cutting-edge technologies have been used in the BAS in Supervision and Management program to enhance online discussions and classroom interaction based on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). On the other hand, some of these technologies have also created information and communication overload in online courses. Students have returned to basic discussions where content quality has more value than the delivery method or the technology involved. The TAM model is being used to filter all new technologies implemented in management online courses, to reduce unnecessary methods that could overwhelm learners and distract them from the course content.

Lepervanche, J. (2010, April). Eventoons: Experimental creative art using educational eventoons, cartoons and avatars. Cartoons and Second Life (SL) avatars have been used in management and information systems courses to bring educational current events to ground and virtual classroom. Eventoons are an experimental creative way to use art to shape current events in a drawing and/or virtual world to enhance their impact in our students. Drawing cartoons for a class is done on a whiteboard and/or posted on a website, blog or SL virtual world. Creations are experimental because they are tested for usefulness to enhance the learning experience. 21st International Conference on College Teaching and Learning. Jacksonville, Florida.

Lepervanche, J. (2010, April). Microblogging and social media groups to enhance classroom discussions topics. Microblogging and social media networks are two of the current web technologies that bring classroom activities outside the traditional ground and virtual platforms. Microblogging using Twitter is a creative way of posting comments and links that can be replicated in social groups, Blackboard announcements or inside a discussion board. Students are able to read and reply to tweets as part of a class or comment in a social group. Professors can select good responses and tweet them as a microblog in both Twitter and social media groups to expand discussions outside the classroom. 21st International Conference on College Teaching and Learning. Jacksonville, Florida.

Lepervanche, J. (2010, April). Capstone course development for the BAS in Supervision and Management. The Capstone in Supervision and Management is a course that focuses on the integration of knowledge, skills and abilities learned in the BAS in Supervision and Management program through a capstone project. Integrating management knowledge was accomplished by including the core competencies and program outcomes (professionalism, problem solving, literacy skills, management perspective, information technology and teamwork), business advisory board current industry needs, students’ current workplace experience, and faculty academic and practitioner experience. The result was a matrix of course components (team project simulation, individual project, OPQ, professional development, current topics, and mentoring) that combine and integrate the above-mentioned areas. 21st International Conference on College Teaching and Learning. Jacksonville, Florida.
