TEACHING

Professor Harlos has been involved in curriculum design and delivery across undergraduate, masters, doctoral, and executive levels in North America, Europe and Australasia. For example, at the University of Winnipeg she teaches a BBA introductory course in organizational behaviour that covers organizational culture, change, leadership, decision making, motivation, working in teams, power and influence, and conflict. She also teaches an advanced elective BBA course she designed that focuses exclusively on motivation, teams and power in organizations and how these topics intersect. She has taught in Dr. Henry Mintzberg’s acclaimed International Masters for Health Leadership program and co-delivered customized courses in leadership, teamwork, conflict management, and diversity for organizations such as the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine, the International Executive Development Centre (Slovenia), and the British Columbia Assessment Authority.

Her teaching approach builds a stimulating environment for experiential learning with some past pedagogical innovations published in management education journals (e.g., Harlos et al., 2003 and Harlos, 2000 in Journal of Management Education; see Publication tab of this website for full citation). Where possible, she draws on student expertise while fostering engagement, critical thinking, and a sense of community in the classroom.
