Harvard Business School: Teaching On Marketing, Strategy and Lady Gaga

Harvard Business School: Teaching On Marketing, Strategy and Lady Gaga | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
Boston Startup Tech and Innovation News Blog...Lady Gaga: You’ve seen her wear a meat dress, hatch from an egg and perform as her alter ego, Jo Calderone. Now, however, you could see her at Harvard Business School. Alright so maybe she, per se, won’t be there, but she’s all the buzz at HBS.

Anita Elberse, an associate professor of business administration in the marketing unit at Harvard Business, will be teaching a case on Lady Gaga’s career. For her Strategic Marketing in Creative Industries course, Elberse will break the study down into two parts. The first, called Lady Gaga(A), will put students in the shoes of the pop star’s manager, Troy Carter, who launched Lady Gaga’s first major solo tour in 2009.

Adult Learning: An Overview (via Ana Cristina Pratas - http://bit.ly/sTCh2Q)

Adult learning is frequently spoken of by adult educators as if it were a discretely separate domain, having little connection to learning in childhood or adolescence.

Distance Students’ Readiness for Social Media and Collaboration

In recent years, there has been a rapid growth in the use of social networking tools (e.g., Facebook) and social media in general, mainly for social, recreational, and entertainment purposes (Smith, Salaway, & Caruso, 2009).
