Changing perspectives, gently.

Organizational research is full of counter-intuitive, often paradoxical, findings.

By applying these findings to the daily life of her students, Dr. Kwon aims to change students' perspectives to view themselves, organizations, and the society. In each class, students will grapple with probing questions concerning human decision-making, organizational effectiveness, diversity, and moral dilemma.

In challenging her students, however, Dr. Kwon carefully crafts each lecture to forter an open and inclusive environment. Recognizing that learning can be challenging, Dr. Kwon employs a diverse range of teaching methods, including reflections on everyday life, real-world business cases, online discussions, simulations, and other in-class activities. This practice ensures that every student feels empowered to proactively ask questions and come out of their comfort zone to engage in class discussions.

In 2018 and 2020, as a PhD student, Dr. Kwon taught a core BBA Management course highly successfully, earning ratings of 4.8/5.0 and 5.0/5.0 respectively. This accomplishment spans both pre-pandemic and pandemic periods. Post-pandemic, Dr. Kwon pioneered a fully online version of the same course, introducing an innovative "lecture buffet" that encompassed three learning modalities—reading, listening, and watching—for her students. This initiative garnered a rating of 4.6/5.0, surpassing the business school average of 4.2. In the future, Dr. Kwon is eager to teach courses in management, organizational behavior, ethical decision-making and morality, as well as motivation, grit, and passion.
