Innovative learning projects in management education and development are discussed in the frame of cutting-edge theory and salient practice. Learning projects are defined as educationally directed activities involving out-of-classroom action settings complemented by student and/or instructor directed reflection on the links between theory and practice. Chapters are grounded in relevant theory, empirical research and examples of best practice for a wide variety of real world management education projects. Contexts include both university and corporate-based management education and development. Topics span action learning, experiential learning, student consulting projects, service learning, reflective practice, internships as learning vehicles, and web-based learning through projects. Extensive opportunities are being recognized for more tightly and productively integrating the normal work of managers with their education.
