The main objectives of this track are facilitating development and sharing of best teaching practices, providing a forum for teaching-related knowledge sharing, and promoting research on teaching and education that showcases the importance of IB courses in business school curricula. This track addresses IB teaching at every level – undergraduate, graduate, MBA, and executive – and covers all aspects of teaching IB, including student engagement, motivation, learning outcomes, and classroom diversity. Specifically, it focuses on the use of different tools and pedagogies such as experiential learning, cases, simulations, role-play, and various forms of multimedia to enhance IB teaching. To this end, this track invites submissions of scholarly papers, interactive session proposals, and panels that stimulate teaching innovation and promote best practices in IB teaching.
Following the general theme of the AIB 2024 Annual Meeting, Dynamics of International Business, we are especially welcoming teaching and learning centered contributions related to prepare future responsible leaders to navigate the intricacies of the dynamic international business environment. Overall, there are three areas that the track would like to encourage. First, innovative teaching practices, curriculum design, and pedagogical approaches that empower students to understand and thrive in the ever-evolving global landscape. Second, development of faculty skills that harness the power of AI technology to support digital fluency, internationalization of the curriculum, cross-cultural learning environments, and multidisciplinary approaches. Third, presentations centered on critical issues in the current dynamic and complex global business landscape that directly influence teaching and learning practices, encompassing sustainability, equality/equity, geopolitics, digital disruption, trade challenges, and more, with a strong emphasis on their relevance to effective education and skill development.
