HUMAN RESOURCES (HR)
Chair: David Collings, Dublin City
seeking proposals for the HR Division Professional Development Workshop (PDW)
sessions for the 2019 Academy of Management meeting in Boston, MA. You are
encouraged to work with colleagues both within and outside of the HR Division
in developing and submitting proposals for PDW sessions, which are scheduled
prior to the scholarly program, between 8:00 am Friday (August 9, 2019) and
8:00 pm Saturday (August 10, 2019).
format is highly flexible and can take nearly any form (workshops, tutorials,
panels, debates, round table discussions, etc.). PDWs provide opportunities to
experiment with new models and ideas that do not fit within the confines of the
regular program. Think about the sessions you wish were offered but have not
seen on the program. The HR Division encourages the submission of creative
ideas for interactive sessions that actively engage participants in learning
new information, acquiring new skills and techniques, or addressing pressing
issues or questions. PDWs can address any issue of concern to HR scholars
and/or practitioners. Sessions on linking HR research and practice,
international HR, teaching, and facilitating Division member professional
development are especially encouraged, given the expressed interests of our
membership. Finally, please also consider but do not be bound by the 2019
conference theme, "Understanding
the Inclusive Organization".
have questions or would like to discuss or suggest a potential workshop idea,
please contact the HR Division PDW Chair, David Collings, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is particularly important if you are considering a teaching-related
session, as it may be possible to package your idea together with other
teaching-related sessions and presenters in a longer teaching-oriented PDW
(thus increasing the likelihood of acceptance).
stand-alone proposals should be submitted using the submission
system; the submission system opens
late November 2018. The submission deadline is Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at
5:00 PM ET (NY Time) but
earlier submissions are encouraged. Note that there is limited space on the PDW
program and we cannot guarantee that all proposals will be accepted.
