I have developed my teaching philosophy through two domains – 1) in the classroom with undergraduates, MBA students, and executive MBA students, and 2) through writing teaching cases to bring real-world challenges into the classroom.
In the Classroom
I have served as a teaching assistant in the Kellogg School of Management for a total of fourteen sections comprised of the following courses:
- Leadership in Organizations (MBA program)
- Professors Lauren Rivera, Brayden King, and Jeannette Colyvas
- Negotiation Fundamentals (MBA program and Executive MBA program)
- Professors Leigh Thompson and Alyson Carrel
- Leading High Impact Teams (Executive MBA program)
- Professor Leigh Thompson
I was a guest lecturer for MBA students at the University of Michigan in Strategy 310: The World Economy. I taught the session using a case study on ecological entrepreneurship that I co-authored.
Finally, at Northwestern University, I also led a weekly discussion section of undergraduate students in the Introduction to Sociology course.
Prior to pursuing my PhD, I worked for two years developing teaching cases in collaboration with faculty for use in the MBA courses at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business. During this time I assisted in writing 18 published pedagogical tools, including one that won an international case writing award:
- “Coke in the Cross Hairs: Water, India, and the University of Michigan” by
Andrew Hoffman, Grace Augustine, and Sarah Howie
After starting my PhD at the Kellogg School of Management, I continued to develop case studies on sustainability and corporate social responsibility, including:
- “HP: Imprinting the Global Health Sector,” by Jamie Jones and Grace Augustine, Kellogg School of Management Cases, 2015
- “Innovation at One Acre Fund: Seeing the Forest for the Trees,” by Jamie Jones and Grace Augustine, Kellogg School of Management Cases, 2014
