This session presents how we have used a variety of board games in several different management related courses, including Organizational Behavior, Human Resource Management, Business Problem Solving, and Strategic Management. Using five board games, this workshop illustrates how to: 1) creatively use existing board games to reinforce course terms and concepts; 2) modify board games for teaching more complex concepts; and 3) create new board games to illustrate additional course concepts. Takeaways include sheets giving directions for using each game as well as tips on debriefing the games to relate them to course concepts.
