About the 2024 CSOL Academy

We are pleased to announce the third CSOL Academy, a no-fee summer school to be held fully online on June 10-14, 2024. The Academy is organized by the Carnegie School of Organizational Learning, a community of scholars interested in organizational theory, learning, decision-making, and adaptation. We are seeking out a diverse group of participants, old and new to the field, who would like to deepen their knowledge about the “Carnegie School.”

 

The motivation for the summer school is to facilitate the dissemination of foundational ideas and recent developments in the tradition of the Carnegie School. As such, the summer school will be taught by scholars who have contributed to our understanding of the complexity of how organizations behave and adapt.

 

The lecturers this year include:

Program Structure

Participants will be expected to read seminal articles in the field, watch the pre-recorded lectures, and be prepared to ask questions in the live virtual seminars. There is no fee for attending the summer school. The program structure will involve each scholar giving a one-hour pre-recorded lecture, a list of key readings complementing that lecture, a live virtual 90-minute Zoom seminar, group work, and panel discussions. The participants will also have full access to all the materials from last years.

Learning Objectives

Tentative topics to be covered: Performance-based feedback, multiple goals, networked learning, theory-driven strategic decision-making, learning in entrepreneurial ecosystems, evolutionary theory, social evaluation, uncertainty, rare events, and rule dynamics.

 

Participation in the CSOL Academy will equip you with a deep understanding of not only the foundational work of behavioral theory, organizational learning, and the Carnegie School but also more recent ‘hot topics’ in the field. Participants will be expected to read seminal articles in the field, watch the pre-recorded lectures, and be prepared to ask questions in the live virtual seminars.
