The research presented here examines the efficacy of an andragogicalyet non-traditional teaching tool for business students –the incorporation of a fitness session at a university gymnasium as part of their negotiation curriculum. The teaching exercise under examination here incorporates an integrative instructional approach, using an experience-based, active platform for learning (Campbell, et al., 2006) to extend students’ understanding of both the importance of physical activity as well as cross-disciplinary connectivity utilizing literature drawn from the management sciences as well as the neurocognitionand health sciences domains.
