MED Division Summer Newsletter

June 2013

 

 

Dear MED Colleagues:

 

This is turning out to be an incredible year and we are looking forward to seeing all of you in Orlando! The MED Program for Orlando is outstanding!  Peter McNamara has developed a PDW program that will provide intriguing professional opportunities to advance our work in education and development. Barbara Ritter provides us with an array of scholarly presentations to explore cutting-edge research and advance the discourse on critical issues affecting all of us.  Lisa Burke ensured that outstanding papers were recognized through awards by our sponsors. The only thing that will make it better is your being there to join in the dialogue!

 

The pilot TLC@AOM Teaching and Learning Conference is not only a ‘go’ but is sold out. We are proud that MED played a significant leadership role in the development of the proposal for this AOM Strategic Doing Initiative and its implementation. The relevance and timeliness of this conference quickly became apparent through the number of proposal submissions and the fact that the conference sold out within the first month of registration. The planning committee has a waiting list and regrets that many who want to attend will be unable to do so because of space limitations. For those of you who were unable to register, I hope that you will plan to participate next year. If you have questions contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

THANK YOU, MED Members!  MED is at the forefront of the critical education and training issues and provides incredible opportunities to advance management education.  Your support makes it possible for MED to maintain its leadership and advocate for education and development across the Academy.  If you are not a member, please join - contact Jonathan Raelin for additional information.

 

Jon Billsberry reports the results of the MED Election of Officers (see details below). MED was fortunate to have a strong slate of candidates. Congratulations to those elected. A special thank you to those who agreed to be nominated – MED not only appreciates your courage and commitment, but also encourages you to remain active and again seek nomination. Thanks to Jon for leading the nomination process.

 

We are currently recruiting for an MED Division Student Representative At-Large.  See details provided by Jacob Eisenberg below.

 

Thank you to MED members for your engagement and support, and to the MED officers and executive committee for your commitment, passion, and creativity.  A special thank you to Danna Greenberg, who despite all of us being late, has developed the MED Newsletter!

 

See you all in Orlando!

 

Best,

Toni

MED Program Highlights

 

Come join MED in Orlando for an exciting program during the 2013 AOM Conference.  There were a number of great papers incorporated into the program and everyone should be able to find sessions at the conference that excite and inspire.  A few highlights are listed below. 

 

Two sessions will focus on innovative approaches to teaching and learning and a variety of others will focus on topics such as the scholarship of teaching and learning, research on training, cross-cultural issues, graduate education, and technology.  Take particular note of our showcase symposium at 11:30 am Monday, “Developing Intercultural Competencies through Cross-Cultural Management Education”, which is sure to be an interesting discussion encompassing a variety of approaches to the development of cross-cultural awareness and competencies.

 

Our plenary session at 9:45 am Monday, with distinguished speaker Nancy Adler, is entitled, “Learning Studios or MOOCs: The Artistry of the 21st Century”.  This session will explore how online technology and increasing global connectivity via virtual networks affects our sense of community.

Call for MED Division Student Representative At-Large

 

As part of the Management Education & Development (MED) Division’s mission to serve the needs of the Management Academic field we are seeking candidates for the role of Student-at-Large Representative in MED. This reflects the Division's Strategic Priority of attracting more doctoral students to our division and further engaging those students who are already members. We aim to select a student representative before the Academy meeting in August so as to have a chance to invite the elected member to MED’s executive meetings.  A brief description of the role and responsibilities is outlined below:

The MED student representative's primary role is to bring the perspectives, needs and wishes of management doctoral students who are interested in MED Division mission and issues to the attention of the Division and, specifically, to the MED Executive group. The student rep is expected to:

·         Assist and liaise with the NDSC (New Doctoral Student Consortium) before and during the annual Academy Meeting.

·         Assume any other responsibilities requested by the Division Chair and/or Executive Committee.

Term: The initial service term is one year, beginning at the 2013 Annual Meeting, with a possible extension of the term for a second year.

Eligibility: Any student who is a current member of the MED Division and will be enrolled in doctoral studies as of August 2013 is eligible to be nominated for the role. Self-nominations are accepted and encouraged. In addition, my preference would be for a candidate who is planning to attend the Academy annual meeting in Orlando this year.

Inaugural Academy of Management Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC@AOM)

 

We are pleased to announce a new, full-day conference featuring interactive teaching-focused sessions. The inaugural TLC@AOM conference will be held during the first weekend of the 2013 Academy of Management meeting, Sunday, August 11, in Buena Vista, Florida. A copy of the Academy “Strategic Doing” proposal that established this conference may be found online at https://docs.google.com/open?id=0By-dU53mnJ5gXzNYR28xcWZPeWs.

The goal of TLC@AOM is to engage members across all divisions in the Academy in advancing the practice of teaching. Located in the annual meeting hotels, TLC@AOM will feature both submitted and invited speakers and end with open space sessions (guided by attendees’ interests).

We encourage submissions in a variety of possible formats:

1)       Incubator – 15 minute presentation on a teaching or assessment practice (similarly themed proposals will be bundled into 30 or 60 minute sessions)

2)       Catalyst – 30 minute interactive demonstration or discussion of particular practices, challenges, or opportunities

3)       Topical – 60 minute interactive session that includes some combination of presentation, discussion, participant reflection and application, simulation, or other forms of interactivity.

4)       In-depth – 90 minute interactive workshop offering a fuller exploration of a particular subject, course, or activity.

Proposals are encouraged but not limited to the following timely themes: (1) Achieving teaching excellence while balancing other career responsibilities and priorities; (2) Ensuring continuous improvement and innovation in teaching; (3) Designing and redesigning curriculum; (4) Fixing problems that arise with students and teaching assistants; (5) Mentoring doctoral students and junior faculty; (6) Assessing learning and all its associated challenges; (7) Teaching in new formats (e.g., online and/or experiential); (8) Building and leveraging networks across geographic, national, and disciplinary boundaries. We also encourage submitters to propose sessions designed to appeal to specific audiences, such as doctoral students, new tenure-track faculty, adjunct faculty, mid-career faculty, senior faculty, or program directors and deans.

Submissions will be peer reviewed, applying a protocol similar to that used for other Academy events. Criteria reviewers will be asked to consider include: Strong interest and relevance (to an identified group of participants), dynamic and interactive session (less applicable to incubator sessions), applicability to multiple Academy divisions or interest groups, clear proposal narrative and session format, and useful “take-aways” for participants.

Proposals must be submitted as Adobe Acrobat files. Proposals, including the mandatory cover sheet, may not exceed 6 pages. As appropriate, proposals may link to online resources or videos for further clarification. Any such ancillary material must be easily accessible to reviewers.

To submit a proposal, or ask questions about the process, email Jim Spee, Program Chair, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Inquiries are welcome through December 14, 2012. Final proposals must be received by January 15, 2013, 5pm ET (New York time).  Because the conference is administered independently from the rest of the AOM program, separate registration including a registration fee ($100) will be required and attendance at all sessions will be limited to registrants.

Dear MED Members,

 

This year we return to Boston for our annual conference where we've had tremendous conferences in the past. We have a great program, note some highlights:

MED Division Conference Highlights

MED/NDSC/OBTS Welcome Reception

Saturday, August 4, 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Westin Copley Place Hotel, Staffordshire

This is our traditional welcome reception that brings together New Doctoral Students, members of the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society (OBTS), and MED members to meet each other over a beer or a glass of wine. It's a great way to kick off the conference. Everyone is welcome!

I'm delighted to announce that MED will be headlined by our keynote speaker, Henry Mintzberg. I hope you are able to attend.

MED Keynote Address: Henry Mintzberg!

Monday, August 6, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Marriott Copley Place, Salon E.

Don't miss this provocative presentation by this year's Distinguished Keynote Speaker, someone who genuinely needs no introduction, Henry Mintzberg. His talk is entitled 'From IMPact to ImPACT' and it will have a strong practical focus.

MED Business Meeting and Award Presentations Monday, August 06, 6:15 - 7:30 PM Marriott Copley Place, Salon B

In the MED Business Meeting and Awards Ceremony, we will provide a short report on MED and then announce and celebrate the best research papers and symposia submitted to this year's conference, and announce and honor the contributions of this year's Outstanding Reviewers (you never know, it could be you) and volunteers.

MED Social

Monday, August 06, 7:45 - 10:30 PM

Marriott Copley Place, Salon F

After the presentations and just down the corridor, we'll be holding our annual social. It's always a fun event and this year should be no different. There's free food! Come along, and share a glass or three with your MED friends and colleagues. Don't miss it. It's Your Party!

I hope that if you can make it to Boston you can come along to these events.

 

To help make the conference a success for all our members, we sought volunteers for two roles: (1) as a mentor on the 'Adopt-a-Member' program, and (2) to help with new member orientation.

 

These vital roles help newcomers to the conference find their way around and feel part of a community.

 

New Member Orientation: There will be two New Member Orientation Fairs at the conference this year –

Friday, August 3rd and Saturday, August 4th from 5:30 to 7:00 pm in Room 302 at the Hynes Convention Center.

Please contact me directly for any questions ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

 

All the best and travel safely.

2012 Academy Annual Meeting: The Informal Economy

MED Division’s Scholarly Program

Dear MED colleagues,

For those of you lucky enough to be traveling to join me in the annual Academy Meeting in Boston, we have prepared a delicious and exciting program, fully packed with interesting, provocative and relevant sessions. Please see below for MED program highlights.

 From my personal experience, it is very convenient to use the ‘Create My Program’ feature, which can be found on the top of the menu when you browse to http://program.aomonline.org/2012/ I suggest that you use this feature to add some of the sessions below to your personal schedule, to make life easier during the meeting. Note that most of MED Sessions will take place in the Marriott Boston Copley Place Hotel.

This year, we received submissions that included 134 papers and 32 symposia. 400 reviewers have volunteered to help us review all these great submissions and we were able to use the majority of those volunteers, 355, helping us reach an average of just under 2 submissions per reviewer and to ensure that each paper or symposia were reviewed by at least three reviewers. More than 90% of reviewers completed their assignments! I warmly thank all those who submitted papers to MED this year and to all our reviewers.

Among our top highlights for this year’s meeting is the MED Distinguished speaker, Henry Mintzberg, who will deliver our annual keynote talk on Monday:

MED Keynote Address by Henry Mintzberg: Impact: From IMPact to IMpact

Monday, Aug 6 2012 11:30AM - 1:00PM at Marriott Boston Copley Place in Salon E

For those of you who had the pleasure to hear Henry speak, I have no doubt that you will make sure to attend. For those who did not have a chance to hear Mintzberg speaking live…well, you really should come early to make sure you get a seat! It promises to be a provocative and stimulating session.

In addition to paper sessions, we have several hand-picked symposia, which I am sure will be of great interest not only to MED members, but to many Academy members overall.

Please see the below Scholarly Program Highlights (including session number):

Dear MED Members,

This year we return to Boston for our annual conference where we've had tremendous conferences in the past. We have a great program, note some highlights:

MED Division Conference Highlights

MED/NDSC/OBTS Welcome Reception

Saturday, August 4, 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Westin Copley Place Hotel, Staffordshire

 

This is our traditional welcome reception that brings together New Doctoral Students, members of the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society (OBTS), and MED members to meet each other over a beer or a glass of wine. It's a great way to kick off the conference. Everyone is welcome!

 

I'm delighted to announce that MED will be headlined by our keynote speaker, Henry Mintzberg. I hope you are able to attend.

 

MED Keynote Address: Henry Mintzberg!

Monday, August 6, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Marriott Copley Place, Salon E.

 

Don't miss this provocative presentation by this year's Distinguished Keynote Speaker, someone who genuinely needs no introduction, Henry Mintzberg. His talk is entitled 'From IMPact to ImPACT' and it will have a strong practical focus.

 

 

MED Business Meeting and Award Presentations Monday, August 06, 6:15 - 7:30 PM Marriott Copley Place, Salon B

 

In the MED Business Meeting and Awards Ceremony, we will provide a short report on MED and then announce and celebrate the best research papers and symposia submitted to this year's conference, and announce and honor the contributions of this year's Outstanding Reviewers (you never know, it could be you) and volunteers.

 

MED Social

Monday, August 06, 7:45 - 10:30 PM

Marriott Copley Place, Salon F

 

After the presentations and just down the corridor, we'll be holding our annual social. It's always a fun event and this year should be no different. There's free food! Come along, and share a glass or three with your MED friends and colleagues. Don't miss it. It's Your Party!

 

I hope that if you can make it to Boston you can come along to these events.

To help make the conference a success for all our members, we sought volunteers for two roles: (1) as a mentor on the 'Adopt-a-Member' program, and (2) to help with new member orientation.

These vital roles help newcomers to the conference find their way around and feel part of a community.

New Member Orientation: There will be two New Member Orientation Fairs at the conference this year –

Friday, August 3rd and Saturday, August 4th from 5:30 to 7:00 pm in Room 302 at the Hynes Convention Center.

Please contact me directly for any questions ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

All the best and travel safely.

MED Division Election Results!

I want to thank everyone who voted in the recent MED Division elections.  We had 531 members voting or 28% of our membership, which is the best in five years.

 I am pleased to announce that the winners in the election were:

 Program Chair-Elect: Peter McNamara, University College Dublin

Secretary: Danna Greenberg, Babson College

Research Coordinator-Elect: Charles Wankel, St. John’s University

Membership Coordinator-Elect: Kim Gower, Virginia State University

At-Large Nominating Committee Member: Alan B. Eisner, Pace University

Practitioner Liaison-Elect: Eileen Sherman, Cardinal Stritch University

Please join me in congratulating Peter, Danna, Charles, Kim, Alan, and Eileen on their election victories! I should also like to thank the other candidates who ran for election, but who were unsuccessful.

We had a really good list of candidates this year and it bodes well for the future of the division that so many outstanding people are willing to serve in a leadership position.  Thank you all.

As chair of the committee, I want to personally thank the nominating committee for this year.  The committee included: Manuela Brusoni, at-large nominating committee member; and the members of the executive committee of the MED division: Jon Billsberry, Toni Ungaretti, Jacob Eisenberg, and Barbara Ritter.

Thank you one and all.

Kenneth

2012 Academy Annual Meeting: The Informal Economy

MED Division’s Scholarly Program

Dear MED colleagues,

For those of you lucky enough to be traveling to join me in the annual Academy Meeting in Boston, we have prepared a delicious and exciting program, fully packed with interesting, provocative and relevant sessions. Please see below for MED program highlights.

 From my personal experience, it is very convenient to use the ‘Create My Program’ feature, which can be found on the top of the menu when you browse to http://program.aomonline.org/2012/ I suggest that you use this feature to add some of the sessions below to your personal schedule, to make life easier during the meeting. Note that most of MED Sessions will take place in the Marriott Boston Copley Place Hotel.

This year, we received submissions that included 134 papers and 32 symposia. 400 reviewers have volunteered to help us review all these great submissions and we were able to use the majority of those volunteers, 355, helping us reach an average of just under 2 submissions per reviewer and to ensure that each paper or symposia were reviewed by at least three reviewers. More than 90% of reviewers completed their assignments! I warmly thank all those who submitted papers to MED this year and to all our reviewers.

Among our top highlights for this year’s meeting is the MED Distinguished speaker, Henry Mintzberg, who will deliver our annual keynote talk on Monday:

MED Keynote Address by Henry Mintzberg: Impact: From IMPact to IMpact

Monday, Aug 6 2012 11:30AM - 1:00PM at Marriott Boston Copley Place in Salon E

For those of you who had the pleasure to hear Henry speak, I have no doubt that you will make sure to attend. For those who did not have a chance to hear Mintzberg speaking live…well, you really should come early to make sure you get a seat! It promises to be a provocative and stimulating session.

In addition to paper sessions, we have several hand-picked symposia, which I am sure will be of great interest not only to MED members, but to many Academy members overall.

Please see the below Scholarly Program Highlights (including session number):

Message From the Division Chair PDF Print E-mail

Dear MEDers,

 

I am delighted to report that the revised domain statement has been approved by the membership.

 

Just under 16% of the membership voted: i.e., 295 of our 1856 members.

 

246 of those who participated (83%) voted in favour of the new domain statement.

 

Therefore, the new domain statement (see below) has been approved by the membership.

 

Many, many thanks to everyone who voted. If you missed the opportunity to take part this time, there'll be officer elections in the New Year.

 

Jon Billsberry

MED Division Chair, 2011-2012

Management Education and Development (MED) Domain Statement

 

The Management Education and Development Division supports theory development and research in management education (academic) and leadership/management development (non-credit instruction). We also support the practice of management education and development by fostering the skill development of our membership through providing workshops in improving effective teaching, learning, and participation and engagement strategies. Major areas of focus include: theoretical advances or empirical evidence about effective and innovative instructional methods or technology; applications of learning theories; and evaluation of studies of the effectiveness of management education and development techniques. Research and benchmark practices in coaching, outcome assessment, learning styles, on-line learning across cultures and environments are of interest as the division serves its membership, the Academy as a whole and the society at large.
