  • Inspiring Teaching Webinar - Jan. 31

    MED invites junior faculty and doctoral students to join this interactive webinar by Professor Diana Bilimoria on Jan. 31 from 10:30am to 12:00pm (ET).


    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.


    Dr. Diana Bilimoria is KeyBank Professor and Professor and Chair of the Department of Organizational Behavior at the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University. 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. Dr. Bilimoria has received several honors and recognitions including the 2019 Academy of Management Learning & Education Best Paper Award, the Scholarly Contributions to Educational Practice Advancing Women in Leadership Award, and the Weatherhead School of Management’s Teaching Excellence Award and Doctoral Teaching Excellence Award.

    This webinar is free and geared toward early career scholars, junior faculty, doctoral students, and individuals interested in learning the basic principles of learner-centered education.

  • AMR Idea Development Workshop for the Special Topic Forum

    Deadline for short abstracts: 12 noon EST January 14, 2022

    Deadline for extended abstracts: 12 noon EST February 18, 2022

    The Editors of the Special Topic Forum (STF) on Theorizing Time in Management and Organizations will be hosting an idea development workshop in two parts. The first part will offer general guidance on the STF and publishing in the Academy of Management Review (AMR). The second part will engage authors in discussions about their proposed projects. The purpose of these workshops is to give authors an opportunity to develop and refine their ideas before submitting to the special issue. Participation in the workshop does not guarantee acceptance of the paper in the STF, nor is attendance in the workshop a prerequisite for submission of the proposal to the STF. 

    Part 1 Details
    The first part will be held from 10 am to 12 noon EST on January 21, 2022. It will offer potential authors insights into the STF and exercises to sharpen their ability to write for AMR. The workshop will begin with welcome remarks by AMR editor, Sherry Thatcher, who will provide important general information about publishing in AMR. Next, guest editors will provide specific information about the Theorizing Time in Management and Organizations STF. This discussion will be followed by a discussion of exercises that authors can employ to improve their AMR submissions. As well, the guest editors will discuss some of the ways that time can be illustrated in figures. All authors submitting a short abstract will be welcome to attend this session.

    Submission requirements: Please submit a maximum of a 250 word abstract of your project by 12 noon EST on January 14, 2022 to this form. A Zoom link will be sent soon after the proposal submission has been received.

    Part 2 Details
    The second part will be held on March 11, 2022 (exact times to be decided). In this session, authors will discuss their proposed project with guest editors and other authors in a roundtable format. There will be a limited number of spots at this workshop. Attendance will be restricted to two authors per submission if accepted for the workshop.

    Submission requirements: After attending Part 1 and utilizing the suggested exercises, please submit an extended abstract by 12 noon EST on February 18, 2022 to this form. You should outline your paper’s core ideas, foundational theories, and arguments. The file must not exceed 10 pages, inclusive of all text, figures, tables, and references. A good benchmark is that the body of your extended abstract may be 3-5 pages, much like an introduction to an AMR paper. All text must be 12-point font, one-inch margins, and double spaced. Please include all author information on the last page of the document and name your file using the first author’s last name, first initial, and an abbreviated title (e.g., “SmithK_Time and Sustainability.docx”). Each author can only submit one extended abstract as lead author.

    Authors who submit for consideration to this Part 2 workshop will be notified of the decision to attend by March 4, 2022. There is a limited number of spots.

     

    Further Considerations

    • Barney, J. 2018. Editor's comments: Positioning a theory paper for publication. Academy of Management Review, 43(3): 345-348. 
    • Lange, D., & Pfarrer, M. D. 2017. Editor's comments: Sense and structure – the core building blocks of an AMR article. Academy of Management Review, 42(3): 407-416

    Statement of Values
    The editorial team for this Special Topic Forum values diversity, inclusion, and equity in our global community. We encourage submissions that account for the full range of perspectives in management and organizations. Thus, we not only welcome submissions that have traditional perspectives, but also welcome submissions that bring new and different perspectives on management and organizations. These perspectives may be based on theoretical orientations that are under-represented, organizational and management phenomena that are outside the mainstream, or experiences and concerns of populations that are marginalized or hidden. In essence, we adhere to the belief that we cannot understand the full range of social experience until all social experience is represented in our scholarship.
