Renowned Professor Presents “Effective Teaching in Business Schools” at HSB Teaching Forum

This year’s HSB Teaching forum featured Joseph Hoyle, Accounting professor from the Robins School of Business, University of Richmond.

Mr. Hoyle has written extensively on pedagogy in business schools. He was named Virginia Professor of the Year in 2007, one of the 22 Favorite Undergraduate Business School Professors in the U.S. by Business Week in 2006, and the David Meade White Distinguished Teaching Fellow 2005-07, among many other honors during his career. His philosophy on effective teaching in business schools was featured in The Chronicle of Higher Education in 2007. 

Mr. Hoyle’s presentation was engaging. His main premise was that anyone who wants to be an excellent teacher must be willing to invest the time and hold fast to high standards. Some of the processes he uses to teach include:

  • Send congratulatory e-mail to A students; ask them to write a paragraph on how they did it; let them know that you will pass them along verbatim to the next class; distribute paragraphs to the next class.
  • To assure student preparation, prepare and distribute prior to class a list of specific questions that students will be required to discuss.
  • Call on each student each day, using the Socratic method.
  • Give open book tests, but use deep and complex questions that demand the ability to understand and work with the material
  • Question design:
    • 1/3 on the material
    • 1/3 application
    • 1/3 extend knowledge to new, complex situations
  • Combat silo education by opening up a piece of the world to your students that is outside of your course
