CARMA has finalized details for its upcoming Live Online Short Courses and is delighted to share topic and instructors with the CARMA community. The complete schedule for April-July includes 38 courses planned for five global regions including: Australia, North America, Europe, Asia, and South America (our two courses for Australia were successfully delivered the week of April 20). As previously announced (Update #15) these courses will be delivered via the CARMA Global Virtual Classroom with instructors providing live (video and audio) lecture and Q&A sessions, maintaining the synchronous instruction of previous in-person courses.

CARMA Short Courses place an emphasis on hands-on experience and on the application of the methodology aimed at skills development through equal amount of lecture and lab-time. Instructors are leading methodological scholars recognized within the organizational studies and management areas as experts on their topics. Several are current or past editors of leading organizational journals.  CARMA greatly appreciates the contributions of these instructors, and hopes our Short Courses will enable participants to achieve their education and research objectives during these challenging times.
