30th CEEMAN Annual Conference

Date & Location

Come and celebrate the 30th anniversary of CEEMAN with us! The 30th CEEMAN Annual Conference is taking place on 21-23 September 2022 in Bled, Slovenia.

About

Let’s meet in person to mark the 30 years of CEEMAN and try to understand the big picture surrounding the future of management education. Geopolitics, environment and sustainability, multiple social issues – all add up to unprecedented challenges we face on business and society level. How can management education support the new leadership that is needed to navigate successfully in these new times? How the management education curriculum and processes should be changed? And what can we do – together?

CEEMAN Annual Conference traditionally includes a series of events in order to get to know the business, political and social realities of the host country and to discuss implications, best practices and collaboration in the area of management development through keynotes, international panels, roundtable discussions and workshops. Several side events are also organized, such as CEEMAN IQA Quick-Scan Session, poster session for faculty and researchers, CEEMAN Annual Meeting, and CEEMAN Awards Ceremony.

The CEEMAN’s extensive programs provide an excellent platform for discussions and thinking about how the improved quality of management and management schools can be the catalyst to drive urgently needed changes, innovation and creativity.

Future of Digital Learning: Where Tech Meets Instructional Design

In 2016, there were 3.7 billion smartphone subscriptions worldwide, today there are nearly 6.3 billion and, by 2026, that number will top 7.5 billion. Smartphones have been revolutionizing many industries, including health, travel, and music. Yet, they have not yet made a major difference in education, especially in higher education and in environments where access to education has been low. Even when mobile learning is applied, it is often under-utilized relative to its potential, especially to support social (peer-to-peer) learning, experiential learning, gamification, and virtual/augmented reality. 

That is why GBSN and Gnowbe are partnering to empower up to 2,000 business and management professors with microlearning instructional design skills. Participants in the program will learn the principles of instructional design and how to apply that in a microlearning format for blended or asynchronous learning experiences. Upon successful completion of the programs, participants will earn a Microlearning Instructional Design (MID) Level 1 Certification, which can be applied to their LinkedIn profile.

Participants in the Gnowbe-GBSN program will also earn a certificate of completion from GBSN, which signals preparedness teaching specifically within the context of business and management schools. GBSN believes that the microlearning instructional design skills can be applied to increase inclusiveness and belonging, expand lifelong learning and executive education, generate additional value from case studies and simulations, make research more accessible to practicing managers, and increase the impact of business schools as catalysts for sustainable development. 

At this webinar, hear from Gnowbe’s CEO So-Young Kang, and Creator Engagement Manager Nicola all about Microlearning Instructional Design and the $10M Scholarship application process. Find out more about the $10M Scholarship here: https://hubs.li/Q015M36C0

Lessons from Europe: Deployment of Artificial Intelligence in the Public Sphere Webinar

DATE & TIME

Thursday

June 9, 2022

10:00am – 11:30am ET

OVERVIEW

The application of AI has been largely a private sector phenomenon. The public sector has advanced regulatory questions, especially in Europe, but struggled to find its own role in how to use AI to improve society and well-being of its citizens. The Wilson Center invites you to take a critical look at the use of AI in public service, examining the societal implications across sectors: environmental sustainability, finance, and health. Where are the biases in the design, data, and application of AI and what is needed to ensure its ethical use? How can governments utilize AI to create more equitable societies? How can AI be used by governments to engage citizens and better meet societal needs? The webinar aims to engage in a dialogue between research and policy, inviting perspectives from Finland and the United States.

This webinar has been organized in coordination with the Finnish-American Research & Innovation Accelerator.
