Friday, Apr 24, 2020

Karabi C. Bezboruah, associate professor of Public Affairs in the College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs and Heather L. Carpenter, Notre Dame of Maryland University recently co-edited a book Teaching Nonprofit Management. This book was published last Friday, April 24th by Edward Elgar Publishing. Dr. Bezboruah teaches the core courses in the Nonprofit Management specialization track and manages the graduate Certificate in Urban Nonprofit Management. She often applies the service-learning pedagogy in her courses and developed reports for a local government and nonprofit agent. This book is a work of two years, and very much happy to see the final result says Karabi.

Dr. Bezboruah presented a webinar on Wednesday, April 28th, on the topic "Instructor's Presence and Experiential Projects in Online course." She discussed her learning experiences from online teaching. The webinar was a great interactive session with her audience, many questions were raised from all over the world.


This book "provides strategies and practices for teaching nonprofit management theories and concepts in the context of undergraduate, graduate, and online classroom environments. Each chapter discusses and summarizes pertinent theories and concepts with concrete examples of nonprofit management education courses. Concept discussions then follow up with exercises or simulations and various resources for instructors to apply in either physical or virtual classrooms. The majority of the chapters are connected to one or more core nonprofit curriculum areas as identified by the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council (NACC) curriculum guidelines."

Instructors, faculty, and program directors of nonprofit management and philanthropy courses at undergraduate and graduate levels can use Teaching Nonprofit Management as a guide for teaching and for creating course syllabi. The book can also serve as a supplemental textbook, as it covers the core curricular areas identified by the NACC, says the Edward Elgar Publishing.
