MKE Conference 2020: 'Learning and Teaching – Front and Centre'

___________________________________________________________________________

 

Description

With challenges of School re-accreditation, the REF process, student recruitment and experience, employability, inclusivity and broader concerns regarding sustainability and the impact of Brexit, how can we retain both our own focus on learning and teaching whilst ensuring colleagues and our institutions make Learning and Teaching – Front and Centre? This is a principal question that will guide our conference in 2020.

Focus on influence

At last year’s conference we explored how management learning can have impact on students, peers and the wider business world. Teaching and learning have the power to change lives and contribute to business success, but are often swamped by other ‘urgent’ priorities. If you think your institution is losing sight of its core function to educate and promote learning then what can you do?

It is not easy as an individual to influence peers and focus on what matters for learning. But as a collective we can encourage one another with powerful experiences and stories of success, helping one another when the going seems tough. Business and management schools perform many important roles, but surely none more important than teaching and learning.

Share your practice

This conference is designed to be interactive and supportive. We invite attendees to share their experiences of how everyday practices of teaching in HEIs contribute to the lives of their students and colleagues (see submission details below). The conference will be a supportive place to do this and learn from others.

We will be offering ‘market place’ tables for conversations around key emergent themes as ideas are submitted. There will also be opportunities for sensemaking, imagining what teaching might look like in the future, exploring the changing roles of teachers and students, and personal action-planning.

The intention is that a day full of learning and networking will support practitioners to grow one or more communities of practice. The vision is to meet needs for practice development across management education in a way that is inclusive, practical and highly engaging. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE – Covid-19

We continue to monitor the official advice from the UK Government regarding the current Covid-19 virus situation. At the moment that advice does not impact on our events. However, if the advice should change, we may need to cancel, move online, or reschedule events at short notice, so we strongly advise you to bear this possibility in mind when booking travel and/or accommodation, as we will be unable to reimburse you for these.

We will, of course, refund fees paid for any events that we need to cancel. Where we have rescheduled an event, we will also refund individuals who are, as a result, unable to participate. We will contact registered delegates to inform them of their options if such a situation should arise. We will also refund fees if official advice means that you are unable to attend owing to official travel restrictions or official advice to self-isolate; if this situation applies to you, please contact the BAM office.
