Specific benefits of classes taught by teacher-researchers
Because they do practical research, teacher-researchers are better able to define a problem and analyze and discuss the results. They train their students to engage in the "mental gymnastics" involved in technical problem-solving in business. Research is also a way to stay abreast of the latest developments in their field. For example, by attending scientific conferences, teacher-researchers learn about the latest scientific developments and discover ways to enhance the curriculum. Research enhances the academic offering by keeping it in tune with the current issues faced by global businesses.
