Title:  Technology Use in the Classroom: Preferences of Management Faculty Members
Authors:  Peluchette, Joy V. and Rust, Kathleen A.
Source:  Journal of Education for Business; Mar/Apr2005, Vol. 80 Issue 4, p200-205, 6p, 4 charts

Abstract:
In this study, the authors investigated faculty members' preferences regarding the use of technologies as instructional tools in management courses. They mailed surveys to 500 management faculty members nationwide; 124 were returned with usable data. Respondents indicated that course subject and classroom environmental factors did not affect their use of preferred technologies; however, time constraint was an issue for most of the faculty members, particularly for women. Female faculty members were also more likely than their male colleagues to see their perception of students' learning style as limiting the effective use of their preferred instructional technologies.

Title:  Development of a Computerized In-Basket Exercise for the Classroom: A Sales Management Example

Authors:  Pearson, Michael M.1, Barnes, John W.2, Onken, Marina H.3
Source:  Journal of Marketing Education; Dec2006, Vol. 28 Issue 3, p227-236, 10p

Abstract:
This article follows the development of a sales management in-basket exercise for use in the classroom. The authors have computerized the exercise and added features to allow for additional and more quantitative input from the students. The exercise has evolved and been tested in numerous classroom situations. The computerized in-basket exercise is shown to provide significant benefits over regular in-baskets when measured against the objectives of the exercise. These benefits include quantitative, immediate, and consistent feedback to students as well as spirited discussions in the classroom as to the role and actions of sales managers.

Good luck and sounds like a great plan

 I have used R and can see both the value and the challenge. Looks like a great approach and I'll be very interested in the results. These students will be setting themselves up both as data savvy managers and possible data scientists. Both job angles are in high demand.
