You are invited to: MOTBC-2013
“The Regenerative Class” – A One-Day Conference
Saturday, March 23rd, 2013
Temple University, Fox School of Business, Alter Hall
The MOTBC “hands-on” conference for management educators is about demonstrating and sharing teaching ideas, enabling thoughtful conversation, collegiality, and improving our professional efforts.
The Regenerative Class
The Regenerative Class is a class that infuses energy into students and faculty. Based on the concept of regenerative sustainability, the goal of the ‘Regenerative Class’ is to end the semester/quarter with more energy and excitement than at the beginning. Attempting to infuse energy into classes can be challenging and frustrating; yet wonderfully rewarding. Our conference goal is to share and learn ways of energizing our classes whether traditional or online so as to foster a stimulating learning environment.
In keeping with our MOBTC tradition, we have another outstanding program featuring a keynote session conducted by Tim Baldwin, Indiana University-Bloomington and co-author of Managing Organizational Behavior: What Great Managers Know and Do (McGraw-Hill: 2012). Notable “hands-on” sessions include short exercises for “The First Half Hour of the Semester,” and sessions with MOBTC favorites Dave Fearon, Jim Portwood, and Sandy Morgan.
Conference activities will begin with a reception Friday night March 22 from 6:00-8:30 at the London Grill in the Fairmount section.
