Integral Theory Conference

When using the classroom-as-organization (CAO) approach, students are exposed to organizational properties within the classroom context (Cohen, 1976; Weil, 1988), helping them develop greater self- and social awareness, and increased self-confidence. While these positive outcomes are encouraging, we believe management educators are better served when they apply and facilitate the CAO approach within a holistic framework such as Wilber’s (2006) Integral Theory. In applying the tenets of Integral Theory to three CAO settings, we draw on lessons that we have experienced as they naturally arise and have been a part of enacting through conscious curricula design.
