Time: 9:00-11:00, June 18

Description: China presents an extraordinary but understudied opportunity to theorize and analyze the role of time. Existing research mostly builds on temporal assumptions originated from Western culture, which can hardly explain Chinese management phenomenon. This PDW seeks to direct attention to advance temporal theories and empirical studies focusing on Chinese management, and, more importantly, create Chinese scholar communities who are interested in conducting high-impact research on temporality. Specifically, we invite scholars with diverse backgrounds, including organizational behavior, strategic management, and international business, to share their experiences in conducting temporal research and discuss future directions. We hope this initiative give fresh momentum for scholars to jointly participating in temporal research in the context of Chinese management.

Title:  Managing work-life boundary for academics during and beyond the pandemic era

Time: 9:00-11:00, June 18

Description: As many academics have already discovered for themselves, it is increasingly difficult to manage work-life boundaries since the covid -19 pandemic and in this 24-7 connected global world. This has impacts on our physical and mental health and quality of life. By the end of this PDW, participants will:

· be informed by the most up-to-date research findings on the work-life boundary.
· critically review the pros and cons of your boundary management style with peers.
· identify factors that affect your boundaries between work and personal life and link to academics’ well-being.
· Share and learn about boundary management strategies, tactics and techniques.
· Start to take steps to address work-life challenges and to improve your effectiveness at work and life.

This PDW will start by sharing some recent research and lived experiences on the work-life boundary experiences of academics during and after the pandemic. Then participants will be instructed to take an assessment designed to identify their boundary style and its pros and cons. Participants will then be put into groups to share and use the results of this assessment to develop strategies and tactics for effective work-life boundary management. The PDW will be ended with a debrief from the discussions where participants will share the good practices and techniquesof effective work-life boundary management, and critically reflect upon the importance of work-life boundary control for improving productivity and well-being.

Title:  Hybrid learning: the potential and challenges in management education

Time: 11:15-13:15, June 18


After the initial disruptive effect of COVID-19 on higher education when many institutions were forced to go online, ‘hybrid learning’ with simultaneous online and face-to-face delivery has emerged alongside offline (in-person), online and blended learning.

This PDW defines hybrid learning as ‘simultaneous learning delivery to offline and online audiences’, which is distinct from blended learning, in which a planned combination of online and offline learning is delivered to a single audience. Hybrid learning is evolving into a mainstream approach within higher education, especially when learners are affected by lockdowns and travel restrictions, or desire flexibility in location. Therefore, hybrid learning is an important emerging research area from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

This PDW looks at a range of learning activities within management education where hybrid approaches have been introduced. In many ways China is a ‘leading’ country given that there have been periodic lock-downs in parts of the country but not others, as well as the need to provide online education to international students who until recently were unable to travel to China. It shares experience related to ‘classroom’ teaching, experiential learning in collaboration with business, and extra-curricular employability activity. From this, the opportunities and challenges of hybrid learning can be identified, as well as their relevance to Chinese management education

Title:  Publishing in high-quality English journals as a non-native English speaker: Dialogues with two leading management journals (BJM and APJM)

Time: 11:15-13:15, June 18

Description: In this PDW, we provide a forum for Chinese management scholars to engage with editors-in-chief and associate editors of two leading management journals (British Journal of Management and Asia Pacific Journal of Management) to learn about workable strategies to tackle the publication challenges. This is a rare and valuable opportunity to have a dialogue between two management journals which target broad areas of management and organizational research, but with a slight difference in geographic orientations. The dialogue will cover emerging challenges, trends, and changes in the publication world. Also, we will provide an opportunity for Chinese management scholars to receive targeted feedback on their research, which will eventually enhance the quality of their papers and promote theoretically and empirically interesting studies on Chinese management related topics.

Title:  Navigating the Publishing Process at Top Management Journals: A Conversation with Editors, Reviewers, and Productive Scholars

Time: 14:00-16:00, June 18

Description: Acceptance rates at top-tier management journals are typically lower than 10%. The overarching goal of the current professional development workshop is to help demystify the evaluation criteria at top management journals and provide guidance for Chinese management scholars to successfully navigate the review and publishing process. To achieve this goal, a panel of productive management researchers who have served as Editors and/or Editorial Board Members at Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Management, Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and Management and Organization Review will share their perspectives and insights into the publishing process and engage with participants in roundtable discussions to address outstanding questions. Key topics for our panel discussion and learning objectives include the following:

(a) Crafting the “Why?” for our research: Learn to communicate intellectual contribution at various journals
(b) Identifying the main drivers of success: Understand key factors that differentiate manuscripts that receive a “revise and resubmit” decision and those that are rejected
(c) Navigating the review process: Know the dos and don’ts when replying to reviewers and drafting response letters
(d) Avoiding the pitfalls: Highlight common mistakes that authors typically make in submissions and revisions
(e) Thinking beyond the publication process: Create impact with our research, particularly against the backdrop of globalization, technological innovation, and increasing inequalities in the world

Through this workshop, our aims are to facilitate knowledge creation and dissemination, increase visibility of the work of Chinese management scholars in top-tier management journals, and ultimately contribute to the rigor and transparency of research in our field.
