       distance education courses: a) I have been teaching a human resource management course via
       teleconference and correspondence since 1993; b) I have also been teaching an organizational
       behaviour course by correspondence and teleconference since 1992. Once a year for the past five

       are highly interactive involving experiential exercises, video presentations, case analysis, and research
       projects and presentations led by students.
