The Conference Theme: "Ethics, Data Science, and Social Media in Business Education"

 

 

The 26th 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. We look forward to engaging participants in interactive dialogue that promotes effective practices in business education connected to the theme.

We hope that you will join us to address the latest scholarship of teaching and learning business.  In the 21st century it is imperative that we as educators constantly monitor the changes in the 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 Ethics, Data Science, and Social Media in Business Education, 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 to follow the Conference Theme

 

The conference themed tracks will reflect the various disciplines.  The focus will be on how individual ethics has influenced the data science and use of social media in business education and corporations across the globe, and  how these areas are covered in the classroom (e.g. new teaching techniques, experiments, workshops).

Following is a list of business disciplines and suggestions for developing a conference themed proposal within each discipline:

 

Accounting – ethical concerns raised by applications tools, any other concerns raised by new accounting standards

 

Finance – case studies, finance models, ethical implications of the technical application tools used in financial management, modeling and practicing

 

Marketing – current marketing practices and how social media and multimedia applications are changing the ethical landscape of identifying and supporting customers

 

Human Resources – how effectively HR is using electronic media in their hiring practices within ethical constraints (e.g. maintain privacy and security of prospective and current employees), how HR manages employee data/information and integrates with other departments in the company

 

Management – ethical issues created by data integration, social media and multimedia applications at all levels of management

 

Management Information Systems – how data science is evolving and data analytics are used by businesses and how the ethical standards are maintained by tuning governance practices

 

Other – how the data science, social media and multimedia technology is changing the ethical landscape of your discipline 

 

We hope that you will join us to address the latest scholarship of teaching and learning business.  In the 21st century it is imperative that we as educators constantly monitor the changes in the business and other environments and make necessary changes in our teaching practices to align student skills with employer demands.
