Sharing insights from the International Management Teachers Academy (IMTA) in Bled

Organiser: Natasha Gjorevska Department of Organizational Behavior Corvinus University of Budapest

Venue: C205

The International Management Teachers Academy (IMTA) is a two week academy aimed to help young lecturers learn about the latest teaching practices in management education. The main motto is that teaching can always be improved no matter how good a professor you are and everybody can step out of their comfort zone of teaching, in order to re-evaluate themselves, find other possibilities and exercise new approaches on how to teach. The time when completing your education and spending the rest of your career practicing is definitely over.
“The idea of renewal of education is absolutely essential. You lose complete credibility if you are not up to date. Then there is the idea of “Can you improve what you do?”. Not just be up to date, but can you excel at what you do?“ (JB Kassarijan)
I will share what I have learned from IMTA 2017 with respect to some new and useful things which can be used in class, how to connect with students, how to design courses better and how to teach with cases, but most importantly how to raise and incorporate important issues within business education.
