Have an idea worth teaching?
Ideas Worth Teaching  is a tightly curated, weekly email for business school faculty to prompt new conversations in the classroom about the relationships between corporations, capital markets, and the public good. Its intent is to provide "drag and drop" functionality - allowing faculty to easily use the articles, cases and other teaching materials that we will be sharing in their class discussions.
