2022 TLC Program: Call for Submissions

The Academy of Management Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC@AOM) will host its 10th annual event during the 82nd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (August 2022). TLC@AOM is a "conference within a conference" designed to help Academy members who have a passion for teaching to discuss and learn teaching practices in an open forum of shared experience. There is a TLC registration fee in addition to the Annual Meeting registration fee.

The 2022 AOM Annual Meeting Submission Center opens December 2, 2021. Please carefully review the submission guidelines before submitting. The submission deadline is Tuesday, 11 January 2022 at 17:00 ET (GMT-5/UTC-5) for ALL proposals. We look forward to reviewing your innovative, engaging, and teaching-focused submissions.

We ask that all submitters to TLC also volunteer to become a TLC reviewer. Visit the Reviewer Center to create a user account or log in and choose TLC. Be sure to check out the  reviewer guidelines for additional information.

Session Formats

Consistent with the AOM 2022 structure, TLC sessions will be assigned one of the following formats:

  • Synchronous virtual only using “meeting” style sessions

  • Asynchronous (on demand) virtual only sessions

  • Live-streamed synchronous and on-site “hybrid” sessions

Criteria for Acceptance

TLC submissions should describe an innovative teaching technique or curriculum innovation and explain how the session will promote interaction and engagement amongst TLC participants. Synchronous and asynchronous submissions will be assessed based on engagement potential, interest to participants, and innovation. Synchronous sessions (both virtual-only and on-site hybrid) must also show evidence of a high level of interactivity with participants. Asynchronous sessions may include process-oriented sessions, reports on teaching tool effectiveness, and descriptions of teaching innovations or resources.
