This study explored the perception of current human resources students within undergraduate higher education in a school of business regarding their effective instruction. Undergraduate business students within a human resources course participated in a Q-sample for rank order of student preferences. This analysis resulted in the implications for instructional use by human resources faculty for effective teaching strategies. Following the sort, the students were grouped by preferences. Additional context was noted and discussed, and application of the results of this study to instructor practice is projected to perhaps be linked to outcomes such as improved student engagement, better performance, and higher student satisfaction. Further, the results of this study can assist department leadership, including chairs and deans in guiding their faculty to most effective instruction.
