Public Lecture

The Lincoln Institute for Advanced Studies is pleased to announce the latest lecture in its Inaugural Lecture series. Professor Steve Armstrong, a Professor of Organisational Behaviour in the University's Lincoln International Business School, will deliver his lecture, 'Re-thinking Management Education: From Cognition, to Action, to Learning', on Wednesday 8 May 2019.  

Before moving into education, Professor Armstrong spent 15 years working in research, design, and development within the electronics industry where he was a chartered engineer, a member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, and a research and development manager responsible for new product developments.

His inaugural lecture will cover cognitive style, a psychological construct from within the domain of individual differences psychology, and its importance in the field of business and management, touching on Professor Armstrong's previous research in the field. He will then go on to focus on macro aspects of management education, looking to the future and exploring the reasons why some of the leading thinkers in the field are calling for business schools to radically re-think the whole of their management education provision. To do this Professor Armstrong will consider the historical context of business schools and the ways in which management education has evolved, before evaluating its current state by challenging its relevance and providing insight into how it should evolve in both the medium and long-term. 

The event is free to attend, but booking is highly recommended. Registration opens at 5.30pm ahead of a 6pm start.
