Welcome to the 2013 Innovation in HRM Teaching Conference web page!

New in 2013! SHRM is collaborating with the HR Division of the Academy of Management (AOM) to build upon an amazing history of Innovations in HR Teaching conferences brought to the HR education community exclusively by AOM’s HR Division in past years. This year SHRM and the HR Division of AOM are working together to offer an engaging, relevant day focusing on teaching innovations and leading-edge topics in HR education. This exclusive one-day event will be held in conjunction with the SHRM 65th Annual Conference and Exposition.

Register today! Saturday, June 15th in Chicago, Illinois. Download PDF form to register.

History. In the past the AOM HR Division had sponsored an Innovations in HR Teaching Conference (hosted previously by several universities, including Ohio State, Utah State, and the University of Minnesota).

What to expect for the 2013 Conference. The conference features Keynote speakers Libby Sartain, Stephen Cerrone, Deb Cohen and Wayne Cascio. You will also hear from well-known HR professionals and academicians. In addition to the names on the program, you will hear Ken Brown, Professor of Management & Organizations and Tippie Research Fellow, The University of Iowa, and Tim Baldwin, Eveleigh Professor of Business Leadership, Indiana University, describe the mastery of HR teaching. Recipients of the AOM HR Division’s Innovative Teaching Award will facilitate sessions with HRM professors on effectively using technology in the classroom, and on implementing community service learning initiatives. Tips for publishing will be given by journal editors, including Bill Heisler, Editor of the Journal of Human Resources Education (JHRE).
