NEXT REVIEW DEADLINE: July 15, 2017
The Academy of Management aims to develop high-quality video-based meetings that are interactive, relevant and accessible to the Academy’s research and teaching communities worldwide. In support of the AOM Specialized Conferences Initiative, we are seeking members of our professional community who are willing to co-create new webinars and virtual meeting opportunities. As part of this initial exploration, we are seeking ideas for broad themes with cross-disciplinary appeal and unique content that is suitable for online delivery and interactivity. Some potential examples include “academic job market tips” "teaching strategies for the virtual classroom" and “qualitative research approaches.”
Web-based meetings will be hosted by the Academy of Management and delivered through a formal webinar development platform. Training and support for the development of these interactive online events will be available for content leaders and meeting organizers.
Members are invited to express their vision for a Virtual, Web-Based, Academy of Management event in 2017. AOM welcomes ideas for innovative, interesting and engaging content ideas from across our Divisions, Interest Groups, Committees, and other leadership communities.
Brief, one-page expressions of interest can be submitted to the AOM Specialized Conferences Committee. Brief statements should reflect:
- Core concept, unique content, theme/topic of the proposed web-based event
- Intended goals and outcomes of the event
- Sponsoring AOM Division(s), Interest Group(s), Committee(s), Network(s)
- Champions (leadership, organizers, presenters)
- Intended Audience (who the event will appeal to and why)
The AOM Specialized Conferences Committee will review and select proposals for development on a rolling basis. Champions of selected proposals will then be asked to develop a more complete plan for the webinar.
