Reconnecting and Reengaging our Research, Teaching, and Networks

Today’s environment is in flux…we have faced changes in how we teach, nurture scholarship, and network. This calls for us to reconnect and reengage with our research, students, colleagues, and corporate partners.

Join colleagues from around the world to share scholarship in teaching, research, and consulting. We encourage proposals that reflect on how we, as professionals in business communication, might reengage with our research, innovate our teaching, and reconnect to our networks of colleagues and peers. We invite you to submit a proposal on a business communication topic in one of the following tracks:

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Employment Issues
Innovative Instructional Methods
Intercultural and Global Communication
Interpersonal Communication
Organizational Communication
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Social Responsibility
Technology, Digital Media, and Web 2.0
Visual Communication
