In today's workplace, managers are confronted daily with issues like ethics, diversity, working in teams, and the virtual workplace. The Manager's Hot Seat is an interactive DVD that allows students to watch as 15 real managers apply their years of experience to confront these issues. Students assume the role of the manager as they watch the video and answer multiple choice questions that pop up forcing them to make decisions on the spot. They learn from the manager's mistakes and successes, and then do a report critiquing the manager's approach by defending their reasoning. Reports can be emailed or printed out for credit. These video segments are a powerful tool for your course that truly immerses your students in the learning experience. The Manager's Hot Seat DVD is just an additional $5 when packaged with any McGraw-Hill/Irwin textbook.
