The scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) research domain has dramatically advanced over the last decade, bringing pedagogical research to the forefront of many institutions’ interests. As an increasing number of important institutional stakeholders gain interest in student learning outcomes, SOTL work can highlight how faculty are engaging with students in meaningful ways. Please join Jeanie and Kathy for an interactive seminar sharing ways to help you turn many forms of your teaching practice into SOTL publications. The facilitators, co-Editors of the Journal of Management Education, will share important publishing process steps and offer a space for small group discussion and individual development of SOTL projects.

After a brief introduction to the session’s aims, workshop participants will discuss their own ideas and current working papers with the facilitators and other session participants. Workshop time will also include whole-group discussion and Q&A, ending with developmental suggestions for participants’ possible SOTL submissions.

This seminar will be of interest to management educators in all third level institutions.  Attendance is free but places are limited.  To book a place, please email john.g.cullen@nuim.ie

Publishing in Management Education Teaching and Learning Practice: Publication Development Workshop with the Editors of the Journal of Management Education and Management Teaching Review.

A publication development workshop with Professor Kathy Lund Dean (Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Peter, Minnesota) hosted by School of Business, Maynooth University and Professor Paul Hibbert (University of Saint Andrews, Edinburgh)

Venue: Rye Hall Extension,  Maynooth University.

Thursday 25th August 2016 (10.00 – 13:00)

The scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) research domain has dramatically advanced over the last decade, bringing the Journal of Management Education (JME) to the forefront of SOTL journal outlets. JME, with an historical acceptance rate of between 12-15%, continues to serve the management education community’s scholarly needs. The OBTS Board and JME Editors recognized, however, an opportunity for a new double blind, peer-reviewed publication outlet that would serve management instructors interactive, timely, and community building ways.

Management Teaching Review (MTR) leverages interactive technology and the SAGE journal platform to allow for a new community of practice outlet complementing and offering authors an additional peer-reviewed choice for their management education work, serving a different but related audience. MTR publishes short (2000 word maximum), targeted, and immediately useful resources for management educators, trainers and coaches.

In this workshop, JME editor Kathy Lund-Dean and MTR editor Paul Hibbert will discuss details about the types of articles MTR seeks to publish, and how MTR differs from JME and other SOTL outlets. Bring your ideas and your work in progress!  After a brief introduction to both journals aims and scope, workshop participants will discuss their own ideas and current working papers with Kathy, Paul and other session participants. Workshop time will also include whole-group discussion and Q&A, ending with developmental suggestions for participants’ possible JME and MTR submissions.

There is no charge for the seminar and places are allocated on a first-come, first served basis.  The workshop is expected to fill-up quickly, so please book your place by emailing john.g.cullen@nuim.ie

Nursing management, religion & spirituality

Articles on spirituality and nursing management often claim that these fields have grown over the past 20 or so years. I sought to rigorously test these claims by conducting some detailed bibliometric research.  The results have just been published in the Journal of Nursing Management. The data supports claims that research activity and interest in both spirituality and religion in the field of nursing have grown steeply over recent years, and indeed continues to accelerate.

It’s not surprising that the research identified spirituality as a beneficial variable in management, training and care scenarios, and the field provides ample opportunities for much more research in the future.  Most of the research supports the view that considerations of patient spirituality and/or religious beliefs (when present) are important elements of care.

One of the key implications of the chapter is that nurse managers be equipped to foster not only a broader understanding of the variety of faith traditions found in multi-cultural societies, but also to develop an understanding of the ways in which individuals engage in spiritual practice outside traditional religious settings.
