Conversations with Prof. Dirk Lindebaum: Chat-GPT's Role in Management Education

I am delighted to introduce Prof. Dirk Lindebaum, on the inaugural episode of our AI-themed season. Dirk shares his intriguing and thought provoking insights on Chat GPT's role in management education. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. 

Dirk Lindebaum Bio

Dirk is Senior Professor at Grenoble Ecole de Management (France), and a Visiting Professor at the University of Alberta School of Business (Canada). He is curious about ‘values’ as meta-theme in his research, particularly in relation to theory building, learning, technology and emotions at work. His work regularly appears in journals of international distinction, such as the Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Learning & Education, Journal of Management Studies, Organization Studies and Human Relations. In addition, he is the author of the book 'Emancipation through Emotion Regulation' (Edward Elgar, 2017). Despite his theoretical pursuits, the practical relevance of his research is regularly recognized in news outlets, such as the Financial Times, New York Times, BBC Radio 5 Live, Wirtschaftswoche, Daily Mail, Independent, Fortune Magazine and Bloomberg Business Week. Furthermore, he has published several practitioner-focused articles in MIT Sloan Management Review, one of which has been accepted into the Honor Roll of the Responsible Research in Business and Management network as an indication that his research serves the larger good. He currently serves as the incoming EIC at Academy of Management Learning & Education.
