Research Paper Presentation
Presenting a research paper is a valuable way of presenting the findings of a completed project or gaining feedback about an on-going piece of work.
Research paper sessions involve a 20 minute (max) oral presentation followed by 10 minutes Q&A.
Case Study Presentation
Delivering a Case Study Presentation is a great way of sharing an innovation or example of good teaching practice with colleagues.
Case Study Presentations involve a 20 minute (max) oral presentation followed by 10 minutes Q&A.
Facilitating a workshop is a great way of delivering practical learning to fellow educators. Workshops should be highly interactive and can include panel discussions and group work. Workshops are not suitable for the delivery of Case Study-style presentations.
Workshop duration: 30 or 60 minutes
PechaKucha Presentations consist of a rolling loop of 20 slides each displaying for just 20 seconds. That's 6 minutes 40 seconds in total. What makes for a great PechaKucha presentation? Click here.
PechaKucha Presentation slide decks must be submitted to the Chartered ABS in advance of the conference. Any presentation that has been accepted for the conference but does not confirm with the official PechaKucha format will be changed to a Digital Pre-Record session.
Roundtable Discussions offer opportunities for a discursive exploration of practice-based issues and topics of common interest. Because roundtable discussions are opportunities for interactive, free-flowing discussion we do not require as much information in the submission as with the other submission types.
Roundtable Discussion duration: 30min
A Digital Pre-Record submission is anything which is prepared in advance of the conference and available to participants asynchronously through the conference app. Examples of Digital Resource submissions are video presentations, posters and podcasts.
Digital Pre-Record submissions that are accepted for LTSE 2022 must be pre-recorded and sent to the Chartered ABS in advance of the conference.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS IS NOW CLOSED
Deadline for submissions: Friday 28 January
Important notice: Please remember to click 'submit' when you have completed the submission form.
If you do not receive a submission confirmation email then please contact Oliver Lowe (firstname.lastname@example.org) to check that your submission was definitely submitted. Unless a submission is received through an online submission form it cannot be considered for inclusion in the conference.
What are we looking for?
When the call for submissions closes on Friday 28 January, all submissions are sent to the Chartered ABS's Learning, Teaching & Student Experience committee for review. The committee reviews all submissions to ensure they maintain the highest quality and include a valuable range of research into learning, teaching, assessment and the wider student experience.
All submissions should:
- Contribute to the conference theme
- Clearly state the focus of the session and what participants will gain from it.
- Demonstrate knowledge of relevant research and literature in the field.
- Contribute to and extend practices and scholarship relevant to business and management education (i.e. show originality)
- Be well-written, and suitable for a national and international audience.
Other points to consider before making a submission:
Each person involved in a submission should ensure that, should their submission be accepted, they are able to attend the conference.
Submissions must not be scheduled for presentation at another conference in three months before or after LTSE 2022
If the submission has been presented at a conference in the past there must be a significant development in the content. This is particularly important if it has been presented at LTSE in the past.
An individual can be a named author in up to four submissions. However, no one can be involved in the delivery of more than two sessions at the conference. If you are named in three or more submissions that then get accepted for the conference you will need to pick two sessions to which to contribute.
After you have completed your submission
Once the submission deadline has passed all submissions will be sent to the Submission Review Panels for review.
You will hear about whether or not your submission has been accepted for inclusion in the conference up to three weeks after the submission deadline.
At least one author from each accepted submission must have registered to attend the conference by Friday 25 March. If no author of an accepted submission has registered by this date then the submission will be withdrawn from the conference.
If your submission is accepted for the conference but you subsequently find that you cannot attend then please inform the Chartered ABS as promptly as possible.
Authors whose submissions are accepted for LTSE 2022 will have the opportunity to make a submission for the Conference Proceedings.
Further details about submission criteria and process will be released in due course.
CALL FOR VOLUNTEER REVIEWERS IS NOW CLOSED
Become a reviewer and help shape LTSE 2022

- Enhance your critical-thinking skills that can support your own research and teaching
- Help to nurture and support fellow business school educators
- Add an extra dimension to your CV and have the opportunity to get involved in other Chartered ABS activities
What will I be required to do and when?

You will then be allocated up to a maximum of 5 submissions within one or both of these themes. These submissions might be any of the six formats (click here to view formats). No volunteer reviewer will be asked to review more than 5 submissions.
For each submission you will be asked to complete a short form with your decision and your feedback which will be shared with the reviewers. You will work alongside two other reviewers on each submission at least one of which will be a member of the CABS LTSE Committee.
You will receive your submissions 'bundle' on Tuesday 1 February and will have two weeks for the review. We request that all completed forms are returned no later than Thursday 17 February.
How do I volunteer?
To volunteer please complete the form below no later than Tuesday 25 January.
Avoiding conflicts of interest
We recognise that volunteer reviewers may themselves have made submissions or be associated with submissions made by colleagues. To avoid conflicts of interest no one will be allocated a submission made by a colleague at their institution.
