Online Garbage Fires: How Going Virtual Hasn’T Stopped Our (trial And) Errors.
The past year and the COVID-19 pandemic has brought management educators many challenges. The past academic year was filled with classrooms transitioning from traditional in-class to being moved online, in whole or in part. Whether we’ve been teaching online for a semester or a decade or more, vMOBTS attendees have been trying to leverage technological tools to find ways forward in our classrooms; unfortunately, not all of our efforts prove successful, but that doesn’t mean we don’t learn from them. In this session, we invite attendees to reflect on online experiential activities that had unintended outcomes and we encourage them to frame their experiences in Kolb’s (e.g., Kolb & Kolb, 2005) experiential model of experiencing, reflecting, thinking and acting.
