Webinar: The Future of Case Teaching in an Online and Hybrid WorldAndreas Schotter, Ivey School of Business, Western University, Canada
April 20, 2022, 9:00-10:30 AM US Eastern Time, 15:00-16:30 Central European Time, 22:00-23:30 Beijing Time
Case teaching online is less effective than on campus delivery, but can be equal to on campus delivery when combined with asynchronous activities. Now, two years into the biggest shift in teaching for most of us, it is time to consolidate best practices and to provide an opportunity for picking up additional skills for a future that will certainly not be like the past. From our work with hundreds of faculty around the world it is clear that case teaching has changed permanently with COVID-19. After this session you will be able to better adapt to online case teaching and to redesigning or designing from scratch entire courses for online case delivery. We will also discuss how to best blend asynchronous and synchronous learning. Case examples for the webinar will come from International Business, but the learnings about case teaching are relevant for many disciplines, and as such the seminar should be of interest to people from diverse areas. For additional information please contact Andreas Schotter at email@example.com.

Webinar: Teaching Culture General versus Culture Specific
Iris Berdrow, Bentley University and TBD,
May 17, 2022, 12:00 Noon US Eastern Time, 9:00am US Pacific Time; 18:00 Central European Time
Culture is a word that everyone has heard, probably used, and understands in some way. The concept has been widely researched in many contexts, for many purposes. We all have some sense of our "cultural heritage" and that other cultures are different. There is a difference between understanding culture as a social construct and understanding the culture of a specific group of people. These considerations are referred to as culture general and culture specific. This webinar will explain each, and provide a brief outline of the teaching tools for each. The zoom link will be announced later. For more information contact: Berdrow, Iris at: IBERDROW@bentley.edu.
