BAM’s 'Becoming an Education-Focussed Professor' programme is a unique development programme designed specifically to support Business and Management academics on a teaching and scholarship track (T&S) at all levels to develop their own scholarship profile and career. 


Session Dates and Venues

All sessions will be in-person

  • Session 1: London (March 2024 tbc)
  • Session 2: Belfast (May 2024 tbc)
  • Session 3: Cardiff (October 2024 tbc)

Launched in 2019 by the MKE Group of BAM, to date over 400 attendees located in more than 10 countries that have participated on the programme.  The programme has focused upon capacity building to define education-focussed scholarship in a way that becomes useable, accessible, and open to assessment.

The programme has the overarching goals of:

  • Promoting the centrality of the scholarship of teaching and learning in business schools and to achieve parity for teaching and scholarship (T&S) academics with research-focused academics in consideration of promotion decisions.  We propose that the scholarship of teaching and learning and conventional basic research (the scholarship of discovery) should be valued equally in terms of the status, recognition and reward for success.
  • Exploring and establishing the relevance of other forms of scholarship for T&S academics. This may include (to some extent and with particular focus) the scholarship of discovery (conventional research), along with the scholarship of integration and the scholarship of application
  • Providing a programme of development for BAM members who wish to understand the nature and modalities of scholarship and develop their own scholarship profile.
