TLC@AOM is partly sponsored by SAGE and features both submitted and invited sessions.

Other themes that address teaching and learning practices to include proposals that support the 2020 AOM Conference theme of "20/20: Broadening our Sight" are welcomed.

Criteria for Acceptance

The same level of quality and academic professionalism is expected as for other AOM conference submissions. More specifically for TLC submissions, every session must include evidence of active audience interaction and engagement, as well as some combination of presentation, discussion, participant reflection and application, simulation, or other form of interactivity. Each submission should also clearly articulate the goals of the presentation to include what and how the material will be presented, as well as the takeaways that an attendee should expect to receive by participating in the session.

TLC Submission Guidelines:

Please follow the guidelines and formatting instructions below to draft your proposal. Please note that proposals will NOT be reviewed if these guidelines and instructions are not met.

Cover Page includes:

  • The title of presentation (in Title Case)
  • The Academy-assigned 5-digit submission number
  • Statement to indicate that ALL presenters on the proposal agree to register and attend the 2020 TLC@AOM Conference should the submission be accepted. Please note that TLC conference registration is $130. This fee is in addition to your AOM conference registration fee.
  • Identification of the theme(s) for the proposal (see list of "Themes for the 2020 TLC Conference" listed above).

Main body includes the following headings:

  • Topic: Describe the topic of your presentation.  What you are planning to do? How does the topic fulfill the theme(s) identified on the Cover Page?
  • Interest: Why would this topic be of interest to conference attendees?
  • Method: Describe your presentation methods - lecture, visual aids, video, etc.
  • Audience Involvement: Describe how you will involve the audience.
  • Takeaways: Be explicit about what the audience will be able to take away from your presentation.  In other words, how can attendees apply the information to improve their teaching?
  • Time Management: Indicate the presentation time requested: 60 minutes or 90 minutes. Also provide a breakdown of how the time will be utilized with minutes for each segment of the presentation and explain how each presenter will be involved in the presentation of the materials.

Proposals must not exceed 5 pages in total.

To facilitate the blind review process, please remove all author identifying information, including acknowledgements, from the uploaded document. Note: You will still include ALL authors associated with your submission during the submission process, but not in your uploaded proposal (given the length of the sessions, the number of presenters included should be limited to a maximum of six). The author information provided will appear in the printed and online Program.
