CELT Faculty Spotlight: Brad Schrader

Brad Shrader, a Morrill Professor and Eucher Fellow in Business, arrived at Iowa State University in 1984. Dr. Shrader teaches using discussion-based learning, case teaching, and case competitions. Cases are a fantastic way to involve students in discussions and to provide examples of complex concepts. Case discussion leads to discoveries, not only in teaching but also can be a form of scholarly research for presentations and publications, as well as student opportunities in external case competitions. The Ivy College of Business developed an internal case competition that serves as the integrative exercise for our resident MBA core curriculum.

What CELT program, resource, or grant would you recommend and why? Miller Grants. I was fortunate to receive Miller grants dealing with student involvement in collaborative learning. Over the years, our college has implemented many of the activities supported by these grants. The upcoming deadline for Miller Faculty Fellowship proposals for the 2020-21 academic year is Monday, Dec. 9. Program and application details are online. Questions may be directed to CELT, celt-miller@iastate.edu.
