CML News

New Podcast series from March 2020 – Management Educator

We decided that after 3 years it is time to discontinue the CML Cast Series and so Sudeep will be our last practitioner we interview. It was a great pleasure to speak to so many practitioners in the past 3 years and learn about their experiences and journeys but also what to discuss what they think we as management educators could and should do to advance management education. From March 2020 the CML cast series will be replaced with a new podcast series called Management Educator. Each month I will speak to a Management Educator and ask about their experience and advice. I am proud to announce that my first Management Educator podcast is Jeanie Forray, University of Massachusetts, Prof in Management and  Editor in Chief for Journal of Management Education.

CML Conferences Review & Upcoming

RMLE & MOBTS in New Zealand – Review

I recently attended RMLE (Research in Management Learning and Education) Unconference and MOBTS (Management and Organisational Behaviour Teaching Society) conference at University of Canterbury, NZ. This was a great opportunity for management educators from the US, Australia and New Zealand to discuss future research and challenges. There was much to learn about how management education as a discipline is valued and supported differently in HE institutions across the globe. Surrey seems to be a great example where academics who are more interested in pursuing a career in learning and teaching can do so and also progress to Professorial level. The system in the US is very different and colleagues shared insights about the fact that tenure track is mostly linked to colleagues with traditional discipline research record. However, the good news is that the debate around equal opportunities for both research and teaching track faculty alike is on the rise around the globe. Other positives I took away from the conference were the commitment to staff development for faculty around learning and teaching and interest of MOBTS in partnering with CML to support ECR and doctoral students in acquiring a learning and teaching qualification, which in the US or Australia is not required or standardised.
