Dear AIB Colleagues,

If you are attending this year’s AIB Southeast USA Conference, October 17 – 19, 2019, San Antonio, TX,

We are looking for panelists for a session on Experiential Learning.



We are organizing an Experiential Learning Lesson Plan Workshop, delivered as a panel session.  

The proposed panel session tentative title: Experiential Learning Lesson Plan Workshop: Sharing Ideas and Strategies for Student Success

CALL FOR CO-AUTHORS/PANELISTS: We are seeking panelists who have a range of experience regarding experiential learning. Ideally, we would like this panel session to represent a variety of experiential learning classroom activities. This session will be focused on simulations and classroom activities.  Activities can be completed in one class session or throughout a course. 

Based on experience, this is a well-received session by reviewers, yet needs to be contained to 4-5 formal panelists on a variety of specific topics in order for it to be attractive to the reviewers. 

Goals of the session: to share information about the successful implementation of the activity; provide a brief demonstration of the activity; share outcomes of the activity; how to connect the activity to course learning outcomes; to provide a networking opportunity for academics interested in, or already engaged in experiential learning activities to enhance their international business course(s) and student experience.  We will defer to the reviewers and organizing committed to guide if this session would be best received as a panel format or workshop format.
