Teaching Theme Committee (TTC) PDW Call for Submissions

Call for Submissions

Teaching Theme Committee (TTC)

PDW Chair: Paul Prosper, United States Air Force Academy,

2019 Professional Development Workshops: Call for Proposals


The mission of the Teaching Theme Committee is to advance the practice and scholarship of teaching throughout the Academy.     

The Teaching Theme Committee (TTC) encourages PDW submissions intended to broaden and challenge our thinking about both our teaching and the framework in which we operate.  This call is an invitation to think broadly and creatively, it should apply equally to management professionals as instructors, and to our students as critically thinking learners.  Submissions for TTC PDW's should be geared around helping instructors become more innovative and relevant, linking teaching, research, and practice while empowering our students to develop their own proactive organizational improvement processes. To that end, we welcome submissions which advance excellence in our teaching practices, including but not limited to those which:

Share and stimulate innovative teaching ideas and practices to broaden and integrate students’ thinking.

Address practical issues or challenges management faculty confront in their classrooms, especially encouraging learning beyond personal experiences, beliefs, and value systems.

Inspire and prepare junior faculty & doctoral students to become highly effective teachers.

Integrate teaching across management sub-disciplines and sub-fields.

Support faculty teaching online, serving non-traditional populations, and/or working in other countries.

Address factors that reduce constraints and increase excellence in teaching.

Explore how we use words to measure/know/disseminate/apply what works.   

TTC gives priority to interactive sessions that facilitate sharing and learning across pedagogies, institutions, disciplines, and national boundaries. Fundamentally, TTC welcomes submissions, presenters, and participants dedicated to excellence in teaching business and management. We encourage creative and provocative submissions (e.g., workshop, panel discussion, tour, keynote address, symposium, tutorial, workout sessions, debates, case study, and roundtable).

The theme for AOM 2019 is “Understanding the Inclusive Organization”. The submission system will open late November 2018 and closes Tuesday January 15th at 5pm. PDW sessions will be scheduled for Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM. Every PDW organizer must submit a formal proposal using the 2019 PDW Proposal Submission System. PDW Proposal Submission information can be found at


We welcome general inquiries and discussions about PDW ideas through mid-December 2018, to
