Abstract

This interactive session reviews the work of our "Top Ten" seminal educational theorists and contextualizes their most significant contributions in terms of their potential to enhance the teaching effectiveness of session participants. A variety of well-known and not-so-well-known theorists were deliberately chosen in a effort to make the session attractive to both experts and relative neophytes of the learning/education literature. The selected scholars vary from those well known in the management education literature (e.g. John Dewey, Jean Piaget) to those who are perhaps less well-known or appreciated (e.g. Lev Vygotsky, Robert Gagne, Paulo Freire, Malcolm Knowles, and Jack Mezirow).
