TLC@AOM Call for Submissions

Program Co-chairs: Christine Rivers, University Surrey, Sharon Simmons, Jackson State University

The Academy of Management Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC@AOM) will host its 11th annual event during the 83rd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management.. TLC@AOM is a "conference within a conference" designed to help Academy members who have a passion for teaching discuss and learn new teaching practices in an open forum of shared experience. Admission to TLC programming is not included with your AOM Conference registration. There is a separate registration for the TLC@AOM and you must be registered for the Annual Meeting of Academy of Management to attend the TLC.
