Management Knowledge and Education


Welcome to the ‘Management Knowledge and Education’ (MKE) Resources Page

The Management Knowledge and Education page is a platform where those researching and practicing management education can share and access materials or contribute to discussions related to the pedagogical development of the field, helping us as a community, explore and generate innovative and progressive teaching practice. It is designed to support a community of management education practitioners and scholars in the broad area of Management Knowledge and Education.

Becoming an Education-Focussed Professor Programme

The BAM Management Knowledge and Education (MKE) initiative supports the development of high quality and impactful learning and teaching in business schools. From its inception four years ago, the MKE project has focused on capacity building around the scholarship of learning and teaching, launched an Education Practice award, offered research grants, and held its first Learning and Teaching Practice conference.

In 2019, we will launch a new project: ‘Becoming an Education-focussed Professor’ aimed specifically at supporting and developing business school academics on a Teaching and Scholarship track.

The goals of the Becoming an Education-Focussed Professor MKE project are:

  1. To define education-focussed scholarship in a way that becomes useable, accessible and open to assessment, building on the Boyer/Carnegie fundamentals that it should be delivered externally and open to peer review.
  2. To promote 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.
  3. To explore and establish 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.
  4. To provide a programme of development for BAM members who wish to understand the nature and modalities of scholarship and develop their own scholarship profile.

Location of the three remaining sessions are:

  • Session 3 (21st May 2019): W5, Belfast, Ulster University Business School -  Applied Research and Creating a Publication Profile Based on Actionable Knowledge (Belfast)
  • Session 4 (11th November 2019): Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University - Developing Disciplinary Research (Cardiff)
  • Session 5 (10th December 2019): Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow - Teaching-focussed Interdisciplinary Research (Glasgow)

Management Knowledge and Education Conference - 19th June 2019, York St John's University

Following the success of last year’s event, the BAM Management, Knowledge and Education conference is returning for a second year. The one-day conference will bring together the business and management school community to focus on the practice of ‘teaching and learning for impact’.

The conference is an opportunity to share your practice, support creativity and innovation, and continue to grow a supportive community for those engaged in management education.

Focus on Impact
We aim to celebrate the value of teaching and learning in management education for students, staff, business, and wider society.
Impact can be understood in different ways – for individuals, disciplines, and institutions. This conference is an opportunity to explore short-term impact, in terms of skills and employability, and also long-term impact, in terms of careers, value systems, business models, and global challenges like sustainability.

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). Everyone involved in teaching and learning has something to share from their practice. 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.
