10307: Accreditation Values and Reporting: The Impactful Five Pedagogy as a Tool Professional Development Workshop (PDW)

10:30AM - 11:30AM CT at Hyatt, Crystal A - Lobby Level (West Tower)

Organized by: PRME Secretariat

As the world changes, the standards for accreditation are evolving. There is a need for change in higher education and accreditation institutions are noticing. The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the Association of MBAs (AMBA), and the European Foundation for Management Development’s (EFMD) are the three leading international accreditation bodies for many business schools. Over the years, there has been a notable shift in the content of criteria for accreditation towards focusing on impact, teaching, and developing of skills. These three components are the foundation on which the Impactful Five (i5) project is built. The i5 project focuses on integrating five characteristics into the pedagogy and teachings of business schools. The five characteristics– meaning, joy, social interaction, active engagement, and iteration –will provide graduates with the holistic skill set needed to create the largest impact in their careers, society, and on the world. In this PDW, participants will be engaging and discussing how the i5 can be used as a tool to aid business schools with reporting as well as acquiring and maintaining accreditation.

Speakers:

  • PRME Senior Advisor

  • John Goodwin, Executive Chairman, The Learning Economy Foundation

  • Meredith Storey, Senior Manager, PRME

  • Samantha Thompson, i5 Coordinator, PRME

  • Zein Ibrahim, Research Coordinator, PRME

Teaching & Learning Conference


10049: Responsible Management Pedagogy Caucus - Innovating the Future Through Impactful i5 Pedagogy

8:00 AM - 9:30 AM CT at Swissotel Chicago in Élevé River View 2

Organized by: PRME Secretariat

The purpose of the PRME i5 project is to transfer and apply these practices of effective playful learning into the domain of business schools in order to create an impactful pedagogy for responsible management that is also applicable to other business domains and divisions. The PRME i5 framework was initially developed in 2022 and was launched publicly in June 2023. Since then, PRME undertook various activities to roll out the i5 framework and build a community of practice. At the same time, the i5 framework has faced some criticism for its limited integration of various existing responsible leadership pedagogies, and for its seemingly limited specificity to the responsible leadership theme more generally. In this caucus, we aim to convene people who are interested in furthering creative pedagogy and praxis for responsible management education by not only applying it in their teaching, but also developing the i5 framework and clarifying the connections to other existing pedagogies and by articulating to their own experiences.

Facilitators:

  • Meredith Storey, PRME Senior Manager

  • Dirk C. Moosmayer, Kedge Business School



10048: Innovative Praxis in the Classroom – Sharing Experiences with the PRME Impactful Five (i5) Pedagogy Symposium

8:30AM - 9:30AM CT at Marriott Chicago Downtown - Magnificent Mile in Los Angeles

Organized by: PRME Secretariat

Management learning and education must develop leaders’ ability to address today’s pressing sustainability challenges. The need to educate for creative and impactful development of skills such as systems thinking, futures thinking, circular thinking, design thinking, sustainability science, digital skills, and change management is well documented. To drive the development of these crucial skills, the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) collaborated with The LEGO Foundation and developed the Impactful Five (i5) framework. In this TLC session, we bring together i5 experts, colleagues who have used i5 methods in their teaching since its global launch one year ago, and i5 novices who are interested in innovative responsible management pedagogies. We showcase exemplary interactive and playful learning interventions that i5 experts and early adopters have applied within the i5 framework. We then discuss with participants how they can adapt them for their own teaching, allowing them to go home with at least one concrete innovative impactful intervention for their own teaching.

Speakers:

  • PRME Senior Advisor

  • Meredith Storey, PRME Senior Manager

  • John Goodwin, Executive Chairman, The Learning Economy Foundation

  • Dirk C. Moosmayer, Kedge Business School

  • Christian Van Buskirk, University of Victoria

  • Marina Anna Schmitz, IEDC-Bled School of Management

  • Aurora Díaz Soloaga, Almaty Management University

  • Benito Teehankee, De La Salle University



10047: Innovating Pedagogy for Responsible Leadership – Learning with the PRME Impactful Five (i5) Project PDW

9:45 AM - 11:15 AM CT at Hyatt Regency Chicago in Randolph 3

Organized by: PRME Secretariat

The Impactful Five (i5) builds on research by the LEGO Foundation that finds learning most effective when applying the five characteristics of meaning, active engagement, iteration, social engagement, and joy. Applications of the i5 framework started in June 2023 after a year of piloting. To further broaden and strengthen the i5 framework through a community of practice, this PDW will share learning experiences from this past year of application and discuss avenues for innovating the future for larger impact. In this workshop, you will first learn about the i5 project, some institutional roll-out activities, and how i5 has been applied in the classroom. You will then engage in roundtables that explore different facets and opportunities that evolved in this past year around the i5 pedagogy: The PRME principles and their relevance to i5, global partnering and exchange opportunities evolving around i5, effective i5 narratives, the i5 framework’s role in faculty training and induction, i5 as a means of incentivization and recognition, and i5 research opportunities. You will come out of this PDW with a clear understanding of the opportunities to benefit from and get involved with the innovative i5 pedagogy.

Speakers:

  • PRME Senior Advisor

  • John Goodwin, Executive Chairman, The Learning Economy Foundation

  • Meredith Storey, Senior Manager, PRME

  • Samantha Thompson, i5 Coordinator, PRME

  • Zein Ibrahim, Research Coordinator, PRME
