Columbia Teaching Business and Human Rights Workshop | PRME-related session

The 3rd Annual Teaching Business and Human Rights Workshop, co-sponsored by Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute and the Columbia Institute for the Study of Human Rights, will take place at Columbia University in New York on Thursday and Friday, May 30-31, 2013. PRME will participate in a session targeting management educators. Please see the following message from the organizers:

This year’s Workshop will open on Thursday evening with a talk by Michael Posner and an informal dinner gathering for participants. Friday’s agenda includes a mix of topics aimed at individuals teaching the subject in different settings worldwide, with a focus on practical teaching strategies. Like previous Workshops, our goal is to provide an opportunity for teachers to share strategies and discuss issues of common concern. Each agenda item will be moderated with a few participants asked to make brief presentations. We have reached out to a number of participants already. Please contact one of us if you would like to present.

Last year’s Workshop convened thirty instructors. This year, we can accommodate up to forty participants. (We have about twelve confirmed participants so far.) In the event we reach capacity before the RSVP date, we will send out a notification that registration has closed. We anticipate having dial-in listening capacity for the morning sessions for those unable to attend in person. Sessions will be recorded, but live video streaming will not be available this year. Our next communication will include the confirmed participant list and any dial-in details.

If you will attend the Workshop and have not already done so, please provide the information in the attached registration form and e-mail it by Friday, May 17th to: Greta Moseson (Program Coordinator, Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute), greta.moseson@law.columbia.edu. There is no cost to attend the Workshop. Participants must cover their own travel costs. (Information on area hotels is available here:http://www.campustravel.com/university/columbia/)

The online Forum established after last year’s Workshop has grown to include more than 120 individuals teaching business and human rights in twenty countries. If you would like to participate in the online Forum and have not received login information, let us know so we can generate an automated invitation (from “basecamphq.com”).

A valuable feature of the Forum and Workshop is the exchange and discussion of course syllabi. There are currently twenty-eight syllabi (list attached) available to participants who have submitted their own, on a password-protected site at: http://www.law.columbia.edu/human-rights-institute/events/teachingbusinessandhrs. If you would like to submit, replace, or remove your syllabus, please contact Greta Moseson (greta.moseson@law.columbia.edu).

We look forward to another stimulating Workshop hope you can join us in New York this year.
