The Pedagogy Team of the ARSP organizes a Professional Development Workshop (PDW) at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting

2016. If you plan to go to the conference, please join our PDW! Date:

August 6 2016; Time: 3:45PM to 5:15PM; Where: Grand Ballroom Salon H at the Anaheim Marriott; Session #: 420 (PNP/SIM)

This interactive PDW aims to create a space for us as a community to explore the competencies needed for successful cross-sector social interactions (CSSI) to address complex societal issues. In this dynamic workshop, participants will develop exercises and draft lesson plans for developing such competencies in our classrooms. Specifically, after a brief discussion of the required CSSI skill sets, participants will work in small groups as they are guided through a design-thinking process to develop exercises and lesson plans. These plans will outline suggestions for material and innovative activities for helping students develop CSSI competencies, in particular those related to system-thinking, entrepreneurial, interpersonal, and communication skills. Based on the material collected from the workshop, the facilitators will develop teaching innovations for each competency theme and send them to the workshop participants. The participants, in turn, are encouraged to pilot these innovations or their favorite elements and report back to the workshop facilitators.
