While the shift from in-person to virtual classrooms continues to challenge the higher education system, management education remains a noble profession. A pedagogical focus is needed now more than ever to maintain student interest and enrollment. However, junior faculty and doctoral students often feel greater pressure to perform research-related duties over pedagogical development. This webinar will discuss the principles of learner-centered education and offer keys to being an excellent instructor within the context of management education today.

She has served on the Board of Governors of the Academy of Management, as the Chair of its Gender and Diversity in Organizations Division, and as the editor of the Journal of Management Education.
