Exploring Introversion and Extraversion project
This project, by Eda Ulus and Inge Aben, titled "Silence is Golden: Learning from Introversion to Broaden Teaching and Learning Experiences in Management and Business", was one of 13 projects selected from 125 applications for a Researcher Development Grant from the British Academy of Management (BAM). BAM launched the Researcher Development Grants Scheme in 2013 with the aim of encouraging and supporting research activities, in order to advance management scholarship through empirical research.
About the project
"Silence is Golden" will explore individual experiences of introversion in higher education. The results will be analysed to develop themes for teaching pedagogy and management practice. For impact, the results will be shared in reports with educators and practitioners, and published in academic journals.
About Eda and Inge
This is an exciting time for the University and for Eda Ulus and Inge Aben who are passionate about exploring introversion in a variety of learning and management contexts. As one of the reviewers for this grant noted, there is a “timely need to explore the extent to which extraversion is emphasised at the expense of introversion."
