Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice: The Role of Protocol Materials in Business Education for 2010 and Beyond
This paper proposes a way to significantly reduce the gap between theory and practice through the use of new technology and a thirty-year old concept called protocol materials. Protocol materials are video recordings of the real world that can be used in the classroom. Technology is evolving rapidly, and in a few years it will be possible to easily bring the real world of business into the classroom. This paper traces the origins of the protocol materials concept in the field of teacher education, and suggests the time is right for business education to adopt the Protocol Materials Process as a way to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
