    Management Education in the 4th Industrial Revolution
    on Apr 29, 2021 at 11:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

    Management educators currently find themselves in an era of great disruption, not only from the current challenges brought about by COVID-19 but also due to the advent of the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR). The 4IR is upending how we work, where we work, why we work, and who does the work, creating implications for what leaders will do and how we can better prepare our students. We will briefly describe the 4IR including its implications for management educators and our stakeholders.


    Dr. Cindi Fukami is Professor of Management at the University of Denver. Cindi has published 12 articles, 9 chapters and has over 60 presentations on the SOTL. She served on the Board of the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society and has been a member of the JME editorial board since 1991, serving also as Associate Editor. She received the Susan Herman Service Award from MOBTC and currently serves on the AMLE editorial board.

    Dear Colleagues,

    Hosted by the Merrick School of Business at University of Baltimore, these webinars bring together academics and practitioners from around the world to discuss the latest topics in management learning and education. Participants who are new to the field are most welcome and the webinar will help them get engaged and up-to-date.

    Title: How to Define and Measure Scholarly Impact: Implications for Educators, Researchers, and Administrators

     

    Session Description:

     

    The desire to have an impact on different stakeholders including researchers, students, and society at large is a long-term aspiration of most academics. Also, scholarly impact is one of the strongest currencies in the Academy. But, what is scholarly impact? How should we measure it? How can we enhance the impact of our research and teaching activities? The goal of this webinar is to address these questions by describing the latest research and using an interactive format. The webinar will be of interest to researchers and educators aiming to enhance their impact and university administrators aiming to understand how to define, measure, and reward impact.

  • Another Great Way to Collaborate!

    Hey MED, Let’s “Gather”


    Since gathering in person isn’t possible, the MED Board has created an online space to allow participants to gather informally. The informality of in-person meetups is hard to recreate in current video chat apps. However, in our Gather space, you can have multiple people in the same shared space having multiple conversations. And it’s open 24/7/365, so you can meet up with people in your time zone!


    Once you log into Gather, you can use your keyboard or mouse to “move” over the low-fidelity, 2D map. When you get near other people on the map, their video and audio will be available to you; when you move away, it will fade away. You can see the platform description here. 


    How Do I Get There?

    Navigate to https://gather.town/oJ0T4UT8m1SDzBV7/MED@AOM2020, then enter the password med2020


    How Do I Use this Space?


    1. Catch up with colleagues. Invite a few people to meet you in the space at a pre-specified time. 
    2. Join before or after sessions or socials. Attend an exciting session and want to talk to others about it? Hop into Gather and find others who want to chat! As a reminder, here are the “live” sessions when you can join. Note, if a session is asynchronous, you can join the Gather space with others to discuss and interact! All times EDT. 
      • Saturday, 8th of August, 11.00;  PDW Workshop  "Teaching with Technology: Seeing Past the Constraints of Technology." (Real-time Open
      • Monday, August 10th, 13.00 – MED Annual Members Meeting and Awards (Mock Live)
      • Monday, August 10th, 13.30: MED Keynote: Stephanie Bryant, Chief Accreditation Officer for AACSB and Welcome Address – (Real-Time Open)
      • Monday, August 10th, 3pm - MED Executive Committee meeting (asynchronous)
      • Monday, August 10th, 7pm - MED/Sage Monday evening member social (asynchronous - but pop into the Gather space at this time to chat!)
    3. Pop in anytime! You can pop in at any time during the conference to see who else is there!
    4. Start a Twitter Conversation! Use the hashtag #MED@AOM2020 and invite others to join you from social media!

    The Gather space doesn’t expire, so if you meet people at the conference and would like an informal way to meet again, hang on to the link and the password and feel free to use it again!

  • Update from Kim Gower, Chair

    Dear MED Members:

    We hope this email finds you healthy and happy in this strangest of times.

    Many of you will be getting emails from various sources about the way this year’s virtual AOM 2020 will work.

    The executive board wants to assure you that we have been discussing this option for a couple of months and have a strong plan, as the MED division, moving forward.

    Since we have been planning, we were able to offer suggestions to the AOM Executive Board-some they used and some they did not:).

    We were only first informed of some of their choices last Friday, May 15, hence this email to keep you up to date.

    There are many moving parts to this, but we had an excellent executive board meeting last week where we started to put our plan into motion.

    We see this as an excellent opportunity to showcase MED outside of the usual constraints of choosing which PDW or which Paper Session to attend, and we are excited about bringing the MED enthusiasm and level of achievement to the entire Academy in a way that was never before possible.

    Alan Eisner, as Program Chair, and Gerard Beenen, as PDW Chair, have their work cut out for them as the challenges we face lie largely in their areas. We will ask for your help in communicating MED’s program throughout the Academy!

    Additionally, Kathleen Barnes will still be running our Writer’s Workshop, and we will still have our Saturday Night Social!:) Please be open to assisting with these as needed, in our usual MED fashion.

    Finally, if any of you have mad technical skills, would you please reply separately to me (kgower@umw.edu) if you are willing to be our digital guru(s). By now we all seem to feature some pretty good abilities, and AOM is offering a technical help group, but it would be helpful to MED to have our own “go to” people so we know our program is getting done! At this stage we are incorporating ZOOM, YouTube, and a Google tool for papers and PDW’s. We will also be asking our Chinese constituents to help us with whatever platforms we can use effectively in their country.

    Thank you all so much for everything you do, as we continue to be a leader in Management Education and Development, and collegiality!

    All the best,
    Kim
