Mason was the Weikel Professor of Leadership in the Wisconsin School of Business Management and Human Resources Department before he passed in 2011. Academically, Mason was a prolific scholar (Vita), one of those unusual individuals who publishes both in the top research journals in his field like the Academy of Management Review (where he also served as an Associate Editor), and who simultaneously writes the textbooks that interpret that latest research for students and the business community. A master teacher, Mason’s enthusiasm for his subject was evident to his friends on the faculty as well as to the many students he touched. A true believer in a boundary-free UW and “lifelong learning,” Mason liked to open up his teaching beyond the classroom to anyone who would take a little time. On this site you’ll find a wealth of practical and experiential material, on topics like how to build a more productive network, effective mentoring, and deeper ways of thinking about diversity. Those of us who teach will find material on how to be a better teacher. Mason was a great producer and collector of multimedia; the websites will connect you to many of his own lectures on YouTube as well as lessons from clips like Glengarry Glen Ross, and of course The Onion. I started the toolbox in 2012 and populated it initially with material that Mason had collected (click here for the original 53 posts). Now the library of tools has grown tremendously to over 300. It is up to the community of scholars (you) to make this a living resource by making sure your best material is included here. To submit new material, please use this link. –Russ Coff (Toolbox Curator)

The teaching business case studies available on LearningEdge, which fall under the headings of entrepreneurship, leadership/ethics, operations management, strategy, sustainability, and system dynamics, are narratives that facilitate class discussion about a particular business or management issue. Teaching cases are meant to spur debate among students rather than promote a particular point of view or steer students in a specific direction. Some of the case studies featured on LearningEdge highlight the decision-making process in a business or management setting. Other cases are descriptive or demonstrative in nature, showcasing something that has happened or is happening in a particular business or management environment. Whether decision based or demonstrative, case studies give students the chance to be in the shoes of a protagonist. With the help of context and detailed data, students can analyze what they would and would not do in a particular situation, why, and how.

Founded in 2012 by George Mason University economics professors Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok, Marginal Revolution University is building the world’s largest online library of free economics education videos—currently weighing in at more than 900 videos. Since 2003, Tyler and Alex have co-authored a popular economics blog called Marginal Revolution—hence the name of this educational platform. What is the “marginal revolution,” exactly? The term refers to an exciting time in the history of economics when several leading nineteenth-century thinkers (Walras, Menger, and Jevons) formalized what is now known as marginalism theory. In other words, thinking on the margin, which is something you too will master as you dive into MRU videos. We also like the idea that revolutions are made one idea and one person at a time. Tyler and Alex are also authors of the widely-used principles of economics textbooks, Modern Principles of Microeconomics and Modern Principles of Macroeconomics. The textbooks and the videos go great together but the videos work with any textbook or without a textbook at all! Our small, distributed team operates out of Arlington, VA and around the globe to create Marginal Revolution University content that’s used worldwide (interested in joining us?). Whether it’s an overview of micro and macro principles, a “duel” between leading thinkers, or a primer on the rise and fall of China’s economy, MRU’s videos bring viewers up to speed on what they need to know about economics.
