International Business Pedagogy Workshop Technology in IB Teaching
10.30 – 18.00, 1 April 2020 .
The preference of Generation Z students and Millennials for how, when and with what to engage in learning, along with the digital transformation of business itself, has far reaching implications for international business educators. In this new teaching reality, how can we best connect and communicate with students on their own terms in order to ensure effective learning and how can we leverage what today’s technology can offer in order to make the study of international business more stimulating and inspiring? At this workshop we will consider a variety new technologies and digital developments that have the potential to significantly enhance the pedagogy of international business. We will also learn from practitioners who are already applying new and innovative teaching methods for IB in their classrooms and beyond.
International Business Review Paper Development Workshop (IBR-PDW)
2 April 2020
International Business Review and the Academy of International Business UK & Ireland Chapter have scheduled an IBR Paper Development Workshop (IBR-PDW) as part of the pre-conference programme of the AIB UK&I Chapter Annual Conference, taking place in the University of Glasgow, 2 April 2020.
The purpose of the IBR-PDW is to provide junior scholars with developmental feedback on their current research projects in international business studies. Although we hope that many of these papers will be eventually submitted to IBR, the purpose of the PDW is broader, aiming to improve the quality of IB research and bring new scholars into the IB field.
We welcome papers from scholars who are trained in disciplines such as international business, management and economics but also in disciplines less commonly associated with the field (e.g., geography, political science, sociology).
The IBR-PDW will begin with an introduction by Professor Mario Kafouros (University of Manchester), Associate Editor of IBR. The participants will then be divided into two groups, and feedback on each paper will be provided by experienced panellists. The panellists will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each paper, with the aim of providing constructive feedback to the authors so that they can improve their papers to the standard required for IBR publication. The IBR PDW will be held on the morning of 2 April 2020 at the conference venue as part of the pre-conference activities taking place before the formal start of the AIB UK&I conference. Participants should therefore plan to arrive in Glasgow the evening before or in the morning of 2 April.
Prospective participants in the IBR-PDW are invited to submit their paper manuscripts to Mario Kafouros (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 9 March 2020.
Each applicant may make only one submission, but may also have submitted the same (or another) version of the paper for presentation at the AIB UK&I Conference. All authors should indicate their names, e-mails, and affiliations, on the cover page of the manuscript. Papers must be less than 10,000 words in length, and should follow the IBR Guide for Authors.
Participation at the IBR-PDW is limited to 9 papers. Participants will be selected based on the quality of their submitted work, and will be notified about the acceptance of their submissions no later than 16 March 2020. Participants will be required to confirm their participation by 23 March 2020.

Joint JIBS-JIBP Paper Development Workshop (PDW)
2 April 2020
The 2020 joint Paper Development Workshop (PDW) of the Journal of International Business Studies and the Journal of International Business Policy will be held on Thursday April 2, 2020 at the University of Glasgow. Participants should plan to arrive in Glasgow the evening before. The workshop takes place before the 2020 AIB-UKI Chapter Conference.
The purpose of the PDW is to provide scholars with developmental feedback on their international business research. We invite original papers from new authors who have not previously published in their targeted journal, JIBS or JIBP. We particularly encourage submissions from scholars who are at universities that offer limited research support, or who are trained in disciplines less commonly associated with the field (e.g. geography, political science or history) but are interested in targeting international business journals.
PDW participants will receive feedback on their work from experienced international business scholars on the JIBS or JIBP Editorial Board. The workshop will start with an introductory session on publishing in these journals, led by JIBS Area Editor Becky Reuber. Authors will then be paired with experienced scholars to discuss their paper.
Prospective participants should submit their paper by email, by Monday, February 3 (to email@example.com ). An applicant may submit only one paper, but may submit the same paper for presentation at the conference. The cover page should include your name, email address and affiliation. Papers must conform to the style guidelines for conference paper submissions, listed on the conference website. All participants must register for the conference before they confirm workshop attendance.
Participants will be notified about the acceptance of their submissions by Friday, February 7. They will be required to confirm their participation and register for the conference by Friday March 6. If they wish a more up-to-date version of their paper to be discussed at the workshop, they will be able to submit one up until Friday, March 20.
Please address any questions to: Becky Reuber, JIBS Area Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org
