Teaching the language-games of business: Writing as learning strategy in Swedish business education

Abstract [en]

Scholarly interest in writing as a core method of teaching and learning in business education has amplified in Sweden during the last decades (Alvesson & Kärreman 2000; Czarniawska, 2008; Borgström et al, 2015). From a learning perspective writing is often perceived as the reflective practice of constructing meaningful abstractions (e.g. Bolton, 2010). The main purpose of the paper is to elaborate upon why and how reflective writing can be used in business education. By referring to Wittgenstein’s term language-games, the paper argues that reflective writing should be one of the central teaching strategies at business schools. The paper hence develops a model for how to facilitate writing in business education (partly based on Colby et al, 2011). It comprises of six different pedagogical elements that can be used to reinforce reflective writing in the practice of business education: (1) essay writing, (2) literature reviewing, (3) peer-to-peer writing, (4) project reports, (5) course assignments and (6) case studies.
