2013 Summer Institute Sessions

The following sessions will be offered at this year's Summer Institute:

Generational Leadership Seminar for New Deans and Chairs – 

Conducted as part of the Summer Forum for New Business Deans and Chairs, this seminar focuses on generational issues associated with leading and managing an academic business unit. The seminar provides participants with an overview of the differences in the attitudes, motivations, behaviors, and social dynamics of the various generations comprising today's highly-diversified workplace. These differences require unique supervision and management approaches in order to lead each generation effectively. Key topics covered in the seminar include generational markers, differences, and similarities; motivational traits of the generations; dealing with generational conflict; and coaching and leading the generations.
New Deans and Chairs Colloquium on Leading and Managing a Business Unit – 

Conducted as part of the Summer Forum for New Business Deans and Chairs, this colloquium is designed for new business deans and chairs, and deals with important and critical issues associated with leading and managing an academic business unit. Topics covered in recent colloquia have included faculty recruitment and evaluation; curriculum development; faculty communications; practical aspects of leadership, administration, and team building; external accountability; establishing and using business advisory boards; managing and assessing online programs; establishing and managing experiential learning opportunities; enrollment and retention management; and fundraising for academic business units.
Preparing an Effective Self-Study and Site Visit Preparation – 

Attendance at a self-study workshop is now a requirement prior to the preparation of a self-study for first-time accreditation or reaffirmation of accreditation. Each of the IACBE’s Accreditation Principles are introduced and the ways in which to document compliance with them in the self-study are explained. In addition, the key points in preparing a complete and accurate self-study document are identified, and common pitfalls to avoid are pointed out. The logistics involved with preparing for an efficient site visit are also covered.
Developing a Comprehensive Outcomes Assessment Plan – 

This workshop focuses on how to design a comprehensive outcomes assessment plan that meets IACBE expectations for assessing student learning in your business programs and the operational effectiveness of your academic business unit. The workshop discusses the definition and purposes of outcomes assessment; describes the key points to keep in mind when preparing an assessment plan; identifies measurement instruments that can be used to assess both intended student learning outcomes and intended operational outcomes; and explains the use of outcomes assessment in measuring and advancing academic quality in your business programs. In addition, the IACBE’s new assessment plan template and a comprehensive example of a completed plan will be presented.
The IACBE and its Accreditation Process – 

This workshop presents an overview of the IACBE and its mission, accreditation philosophy, and scope of accreditation. The workshop also describes the IACBE's diamond-standard value proposition; explains the IACBE's outcomes-based approach to quality assurance and advancement; identifies the IACBE's criteria for accreditation; and describes the steps in the IACBE's accreditation process.
Site-Visit Peer Reviewer Training – 

An effective accreditation review process depends on a careful, thorough, and objective site visit conducted by a team of well-trained peer reviewers. As the IACBE grows both domestically and worldwide, a corps of competent site-visit evaluators becomes increasingly essential. Workshop participants undertake simulated site-visit reviews, beginning with training on how to evaluate self-studies. At the end of the day, you will have completed the requirements necessary to be assigned to a site-visit team.
Site-Visit Team Chair Training – 

This workshop focuses on the responsibilities associated with chairing an accreditation site-visit team. The workshop is intended only for those who have completed a site-visit peer reviewer training session and have been a member of a site-visit team.
SunSummer Institute

The sessions are conducted by deans, chairs, and other administrators from the member institutions of the IACBE, as well as IACBE staff members. Intended for both current and prospective members of the IACBE, the institute provides significant opportunities for professional development, networking, and the sharing of best practices in business education. Prospective members will find the IACBE Summer Institute especially beneficial in learning more about the organization and its
approach to quality assurance in business education.
