4.0 out of 5 stars Made HR Class Much More Engaging, May 3, 2007
This review is from: Cases in Public Human Resource Management (Paperback)
I used this casebook for the first time in a graduate-level public sector human resource management course in the Spring of 2007. I essentially structured the course around the case studies, using a basic survey text as a supplement. The student response was strongly positive. I had them do weekly writing assignments based on the cases, and we started each class meeting by discussing the cases. This approach made the subject matter much more real and practical to the students, and as a result they all excelled. If I have any criticisms of the book, they are: 1) many of the cases that are labeled as something other than a disciplinary matter are actually disciplinary matters. So there is less variety to the cases than a look at the table of contents indicates. 2) For such a slim book, the price tag is quite high!
