Conference Theme: “Disruptive Technologies…In Every Curriculum…Creates Emerging Careers”



The 27 th Annual Southwestern Business Administration Teaching Conference seeks to promote the scholarship of teaching and learning across all business disciplines and equip business educators with new techniques and resources for teaching. This year the theme is “Disruptive Technologies…In Every Curriculum…Creates Emerging Careers”.   We look forward to engaging participants in interactive dialogue that promotes the use of emerging technology in every curriculum to enrich an understanding  of what we should deliver to our students so that they can thrive in this current dynamic business environment.

We hope that you will join us to address the latest scholarship of teaching to advance and learn how to deploy technology in both  the tech and non-tech  curriculum.  In the 21st century it is imperative that we as educators constantly monitor the changes in business and other environments and make necessary changes in our teaching practices to align student skills with employer demands. Consider how you utilize the theme platforms of social media, ethics or science data in while teaching.

Paper submissions will be considered for publication in the Southwestern Business Administration Journal.  All proposals do not have to  explicitly articulate a connection to the conference theme of Disruptive Technologies…In Every Curriculum…Creates Emerging Careers, although we encourage participants to consider submitting proposals that do purposefully address the theme which we hope will result in a track of themed sessions at the conference. 


Suggestions for Submissions/Criteria

The conference agenda will reflect various disciplines.  The focus will be on  how emerging technology can be utilized in any curriculum,  how these areas are covered in the classroom (e.g. new teaching techniques, experiments, workshops) and the inter disciplinary career choices that might evolve. 

In the 21st century it is imperative that we as educators constantly monitor the changes in the business environment and make necessary changes in our teaching practices to align student skills with employer demands.  Join Us!
