Findings in neuroplasticity confirm that the brain continues to change over time, and that different types of experience result in different types of change (plasticity). Further, the type of plasticity change enables (or disables) or favors (or discourages) different thinking capabilities. Applying these findings, the authors offer an argument that the type of change enabled by teaching-to-repeat (T2R), a passive learning approach prevalent in business education, prepares students' brains to perform in a manner quite different from that valued by business practitioners. Of perhaps greater importance, educational methods of this sort actively discourage the type of brain development consistent with desired capabilities.
This research advances the argument that practitioner complaints about the sorts of deficiencies in skills and competencies found in business students may result at least in part from what we call T2R. Behaviors taught in the classroom are being felt in the workplace. In contrast to the structured educational environment, managers work in an environment that is characteristically variable: a “messy, fluxing, chaotic world of competing demands …” (Chia, 2005, p. 1092). To effectively prepare managers to function productively in this type situation, we offer an agile thinking perspective, employing what we call T2V, a pedagogy based upon an understanding of neuroplasticity and specifically designed to develop variability in thought.
