    MOBTS Oceania Call for Proposals

    January 30 to February 1, 2024

    University of Queensland | Brisbane, Australia

    Submission Deadline: Monday, October 2nd | In-Person, Hybrid, and Virtual Submission Options Available!


    Call For Proposals

    Welcome to MOBTS Oceania 2024! We look forward to hosting you at University of Queensland in Brisbane, Queensland from January 30 – February 1, 2024, and receiving your proposals.

    The phrase 'living your best life,' seems designed especially for the Oceania region. With the sand, sun, forests, mountains, seas, and rich cultural heritage and traditions around us, it is easy to be inspired by the beauty in which we are surrounded.

    In this Call for Proposals, we want you to reflect a different kind of inspiration – that of your own teaching experience. Our Call for Proposals is a simple one: we want you to be 'living your best teaching experience', and we want you to engender your enthusiasm with others. Our only emphasis is for sessions which are interactive and / or experiential. Show us your best stuff!

    Transfer the excitement, engagement, and energy of your (physical or virtual or hybrid) classroom practice to a group of like-minded management educators, eager and willing to adapt key innovations and learnings to their own classroom experience.  You might think about how you have engaged students in their learning, what you are taking forward out of the pandemic shift to virtual learning, or how you bring new pedagogies and practices to life in your classroom.

    Alongside the physical conference, MOBTS Oceania intends on providing some form of hybrid conferencing moving forward to enable those that are not able to physically join us to participate in the conference. This includes both presenting and attendance. Your session can be submitted as any of the three following formats:

    • In-Person Only: This means that you will only be engaging in your session with people physically at the conference.
    • Hybrid: This means that you will be presenting your session in-person, but also allow for simultaneous online engagement.
    • Virtual: This means that you will be presenting your session virtually while also engaging with others that are both virtual and physically present at the conference.

    Selecting Hybrid does not guarantee that your session will be programmed as we are seeking to provide a slimmer hybrid/virtual program than the general program itself.

    Proposals can be in the form of interactive exercises, panel/symposium sessions, roundtable provocations (refer to the Submission Guidelines for new guidance on roundtable expectations), or Professional Development Workshops (PDW). Sessions are to be 60-minutes long. A noteworthy criterion is that of audience engagement; we encourage submissions that share teaching innovations by showing and doing them. While MOBTS Oceania is not that place for telling us about your teaching in the style of a traditional research presentation, workshops can help your articulate your insights for such outlets.

    All submissions are double-anonymous reviewed. Authors should expect to review three other submission as part of the reciprocity and collegiality that is MOBTS, namely "an environment in which educators at all stages of their careers can reaffirm the relational nature of learning and the values essential to the integrity of the learning process." Accepted submissions will have the opportunity to be included in our Conference Proceedings with ISBN.
