Management (Course 15)
Jared Curhan

Professor Jared Curhan uses digital technology to accelerate the data analysis and feedback processes in his negotiations course, a management class offered to graduate students and undergraduates across MIT. Prior to innovating with digital technology, students in his class would report outcomes on paper, the results would be manually entered into a spreadsheet, analyzed, and then reported out a week later.

Now, with a digital system, students are able to see the real-time scoring of the results. Prof. Curhan walks the class through the analysis and each student can see how their response compared to the average of the whole class.

Curhan won the student-nominated Teaching With Digital Technology Award in 2019. He tells his story of innovation in this video.
