In their research and teaching at the Dolan School of Business at Fairfield University, professors Don Gibson and David Schmidt have explored emotions and ethics in the workplace. Faculty joined them in a lively conversation about whether emotions are irrational and best suppressed in business education, or whether emotions are actually a critical variable in essential business behaviors and practices.

"Emotions and Ethics and the Workplace: How Feelings can be Integrated into Business Pedagogy"
(Nov. 10, 2010, noon-1:30)
If we seek to create robust conceptual foundations for alternative approaches to business education, the contribution of emotions needs to be more explicitly part of the foundation. Such an approach is consistent with the Jesuit perspective on cura personalis, the concept of a pedagogy that recognizes and cares for students as whole persons. This session examined the arguments for and against bringing affective processes, or feelings, into the business classroom. Examples were given of pedagogical strategies that appeal to or incorporate feelings to achieve specific learning objectives.
