AOM 2011: Schedule Planning
Like last year, I’ll be live-blogging via Twitter from the AOM conference, which begins today. This post contains my hypothetical schedule. Of course, the events that you want to see are not always the events you end up seeing, so this is not necessarily definite. I’ll be copying my live-blogs into daily posts, along with summaries of each day’s events as I experienced them.
I’m also participating in AOM’s first experiment in live blogging the conference at http://meeting.aomonline.org/news/. While you’ll get all of my content in both places, also check out the official conference blog for the other contributors.
Much like at SIOP this year, I noticed that coverage of “technology at work” is reduced at AOM. I am beginning to wonder whether this is a trend!
Personally, I’m involved in four pieces at AOM this year, which are highlighted in the chart below. I strongly recommend the three where I’m presenting:
- The all-academy PDW, Connecting the Academy through Technology, which will be a combination of presentations and table discussions on various technology-oriented topics. I’ll be personally presenting on Social Media and Gameification in the Classroom during this session on my work with social media and gameification as a way to improve college student outcomes. We’ve got a fascinating line-up, including discussion on recruiting, training, and performance appraisal applications of virtual worlds (like Second Life).
- My OB/HR/OCIS PDW, Researching and Teaching a Second Life: A Tutorial on Virtual Worlds, in which I will be introducing attendees to the virtual world, Second Life, and how to use it to support research, as a subject of research (e.g. how to use virtual worlds to facilitate virtual teamwork), and as a tool for teaching.
- The Future of Management and Social Media, a panel organized by Gordon Schmidt in which a variety of industry folks and academics (including me!) will be discussing… well… the future of management and social media! What are the implications of social media for the world of work, for education, for research? Come find out!
