Carnegie School of Organizational Learning
Conference & Academy
Applications are due no later than February 28, 2023
About the Academy
We are pleased to announce the second CSOL Academy, a no-fee summer school to be held fully online from June 26-30, 2023. 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.
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, and panel discussions. The participants will also have full access to all the materials from last year.
Topics to be covered in this year's Academy include (tentatively):
Cognitive foundations of learning
Endogenous uncertainty in real options and entrepreneurial entry
Searching for expertise
Organizational learning and creativity
Learning in networks and ecosystems
Firm and industry co-evolution
A behavioral theory of smart contrarianism.
