Theme - Your Voice: Shaping the Future of Management Education

With challenges of ensuring an excellent and inclusive student experience with successful employability outcomes against the backdrop of School re-accreditation, the REF and TEF processes, 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 your voice heard as you shape the future of Management Education? This principal question guides our MKE Teaching Practice conference in 2023.

Focus on influence

At last year’s conference we explored how management education can have impact on students, peers and the wider business world, post-pandemic.  Teaching and learning have the power to change lives and contribute to business success but are often swamped by other activities.  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 participants to share their experiences of how everyday practices of university teaching and learning impact the lives of their students and colleagues.  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 themes identified from your submissions.  There will also be opportunities for sensemaking, imagining what teaching might look like in the future, exploring the changing roles of educators and students, as well as opportunities for personal action-planning.

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

Practice to publication

Publishing is though also a key aspect of our scholarly practice.  This conference is therefore designed to support you by creating a space for discussion and reflection on how we can transform our practice while contributing potential publications.  This will be an opportunity to meet the editor of a management knowledge and education journal, who will provide insights into the process of publishing your education innovations and of selecting the appropriate channels through which to do this.  With peer support you will explore how you might convert your innovations into a research article that joins your chosen journal’s/outlet’s current conversation.  It is intended that all participants will leave with a publishing action plan.
