Management Education and Development (MED) Call for Submissions

 Call for Submissions 

MANAGEMENT EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT (MED)
Program Chair: Sabine Hoidn, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland;

Please join your fellow management educators, developers, and researchers, at all stages of our careers, in submitting your empirical and conceptual papers, challenging scholarly and provocative essays, and symposia for the 79th Academy of Management (AOM) Meeting in Boston, August 9-13, 2019!

MED is the education theory, practice and policy research division of AOM. We welcome research insights that address challenges and opportunities that educators, leaders, students and administrators face: education research and learning policy, business school governance and accreditation, leadership development, pedagogic theory development (e.g. design-based research), course/program curriculum and pedagogy (e.g. formative assessment, new technologies, effective teaching strategies, learning outcomes), and scholarly writing and publication processes at the undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral, executive and non-credit bearing programs.

This year's conference theme: Understanding the Inclusive Organization

This year's theme offers the chance to showcase how management education and development contributes to advance our understanding of the inclusive organization. Inclusive organizations are open systems of opportunity driven by broad participation and equity. They incorporate and value the cognitive, linguistic, ideological, economic, and other diversity of individuals. Questions that come to mind: What are the characteristics of inclusive organizations? Are these characteristics generalizable across cultures? How do inclusive organizations differ from porous or boundaryless organizations? What is inclusive practice? What are the effects of inclusion on employee, organizational, or societal outcomes? How do organizational structures, cultures, and/or identities contribute to, or detract from, organizational inclusiveness? How do institutional or societal contexts impact organizational inclusiveness? Do the meaning and import of inclusion differ across stakeholder groups? Are there critical perspectives on organizational inclusion that move beyond managerialism? What methodologies may be used to study inclusive organizations? How can we create more inclusive learning environments?

We invite you to submit your work to the MED Division to be considered for inclusion in the 2019 conference program! Your submissions may have theoretical or practical aims, but should be grounded in scholarship appropriate to the field. Our program will emerge from what we, the MED community of researchers, educators and scholarly practitioners, find most meaningful in the peer-review process.

Submission System Closes: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 5:00 PM ET (NY Time).

Call for Reviewers: We are delighted that the MED community is strongly committed to a quality program, and that when you submit a paper you also sign up as a reviewer. In addition, we most appreciate distinguished and generous colleagues who sign up to review even when they are not submitting! Our program is as good as our reviewers, and we are fortunate to have so many of you gracious enough to ensure that quality continues! As a reviewer, you are also offering our community of management education researchers developmental support in their publication journeys. Please watch for the reviewer volunteer sign up call and use the AOMreviewer signup, available online at the end of October (https://aom.org/annualmeeting/review/). You may be asked to review up to two papers from our division based on the reviewer keywords you provide that match with those provided by paper authors. We thank you for your generosity in providing your time, and your commitment to the principles of collegiality and community. MED Outstanding Reviewer Awards will be given to those reviewers who provide the highest-quality (most extensive and constructive) reviews of competitive paper and symposium submissions for the division's program as part of the Academy of Management's annual meeting.

Writers' Workshop PDW: A central aspect of the MED program is to provide feedback that can help on the publication journey. A select number of papers that cannot be in the main program due to the very limited time available will be invited to the well-established "Writers' Workshop PDW" where journal editors, reviewers and other experienced authors will provide feedback, with the intention of assisting authors to take the paper to a publishable version. These papers must show high promise that they may be developed into published articles; authors commit to comment on others' papers in the most constructive and collegial spirit.

MED Division Awards: Five recognition awards will be given to submissions that are selected from papers and symposia proposals submitted to the MED Division for the 2019 AOM program. PLEASE DO NOT BE SHY - NOMINATE YOURSELF! To be eligible for the awards the submission cover page and the first paragraph of the paper must both include: a) the award(s) for which the submission is to be considered and b) a statement that all authors meet the criteria for the award, where applicable. Signaling your fit with the awards listed below makes our selection processes easier! This year's MED Awards (subject to sponsor confirmation) are:

  • Best Paper in Management Education sponsored by MOBTS and the Journal of Management Education for the paper that offers the most significant contribution to management education.
  • Best Paper in Graduate Management Education  for the most significant contribution to graduate management education.
  • SAGE/Journal of Leadership and Organizational Studies Junior Faculty Best Paper Award for the most significant contribution that advances leadership and organizational studies in a paper authored by junior faculty members who earned their PhD within the past nine years, that is, have graduated in 2009 or later (doctoral students may be co-authors).
  • Barry Armandi Award for Best Student Paper in Management Education Research for a student(s) authored paper that offers the most significant contribution to advance management education and development.  (NOTE: Lead author must be a registered doctoral or postgraduate research student at the time of submission and no more than one non-student may be an author to qualify for this award).
    • Best Symposium in Management Education and Development Award sponsored by McGraw Hill for the symposium that offers the most significant contribution to advance management education and development.
     

Submission Instructions: Follow the AOM 2019 general submission guidelines. The submission system will be open in late November at: https://aom.org/annualmeeting/submission/

The Management Education and Development Division looks forward to your submissions! 


Please join your fellow management educators, developers, and researchers, at all stages of our careers, in submitting your empirical and conceptual papers, challenging scholarly and provocative essays, and symposia for the 2018 Academy of Management (AOM) Meeting!

 

MED is the Education Policy and Practice division of AOM, so if your work is topical we welcome research insights that address challenges and opportunities that educators face (e.g. assessment, technology, the changing classroom, accreditation, etc), at the undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral, executive and non-credit bearing programs. We are also interested in the process of managing (business or other) schools and insights on the professional lives and challenges of educators in all contexts.

 

This year’s conference theme, Improving Lives, offers perhaps the most creative open we have seen - the chance to showcase how management education prepares our students for a life of ethical and service-based leadership, how our research often focuses on ideas and innovation to help others, and what lies ahead for us in management education and development as scholars and teachers as we face local and global challenges to help improve lives on so many fronts. Our program will emerge from what we, the MED community of researchers and scholarly practitioners, find most meaningful in the peer-review process. Your submissions may have theoretical or practical aims, but should be grounded in scholarship appropriate to the field. For a link to the many provocative questions this theme presents, please visit: http://aom.org/annualmeeting/theme/
