The 2014 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Philadephia (1st-5th of August) will include a professional development workshop titled “Responsible Management Education in Action: Applying Frameworks for Organizational, Curricular, and Classroom Practice” as part of the Management Education and Development (MED) division. The organizers Oliver Laasch, Dirk Moosmayer, and Agata Stachowicz-Stanusch aim to provide participants with action oriented knowledge for responsible management education on organizational, curricular, and classroom level.
The PDW will firstly provide participants with an extensive toolbox of the presented action-oriented frameworks; secondly help them to apply these frameworks in their own educational practice; and thirdly provide opportunities to engage with colleagues who are experts in the different tools and thus to build a professional network that may support participants in shaping responsible management education when back home in their classrooms. After short introductions by the presenters, participants can chose to engage in round tables focusing on (1) responsible management in the higher education institution, (2) responsible management in the curriculum, or (3) responsible management in the classroom. Finally, insights from the table discussions will be collected and made available through MED and United Nations PRME channels. Distinguished presenters and roundtable discussion leaders in the workshop will be:
- Jonas Härtle (United Nations PRME): Principles for Responsible Management Education – How to apply the Principles for Responsible Management Education, and ways to engage for faculty members through PRME working groups.
