  2. Discussing useful research methods
  3. Developing new theoretical frameworks in entrepreneurship
  4. Applying existing theories to better understand the entrepreneurial process
  5. Reviewing a research domain and engaging in pro and contra discourse
  6. Discussing disruptions needed to improve the review process and confidence in research findings (e.g., replication studies, crowdsourcing reviews)

Pedagogy Track: Pedagogy or curriculum topics might include, but will not be limited to the following:

  1. Insights to improve student engagement and learning
  2. Introductions to new pedagogical tools and exercises

Workshops are intended to be 45 minute sessions that are best suited for proposals that are designed to teach or develop specific research (e.g. qualitative research, other unique research methodologies, discussion of an emerging research domain, etc.) or pedagogical (e.g. writing teaching cases, experiential exercises, simulations, etc.) skills. 
The proposer(s) would have to describe what they intend to address with an emphasis on
  1. How the workshop relates to the conference theme
  2. How they will engage the audience in an interactive session

  1. Showcase a research project or pedagogy
  2. A research stream or development project you are working on
  3. Explaining a unique pedagogy or curriculum activity to improve student engagement and learning
