Teaching and Learning SIG

Our mission is the advancement of marketing education. To accomplish this mission, we do a variety of activities. At the AMA educator conferences, we host socials and run special sessions on current topics in marketing education. In partnership with Pearson Prentice-Hall, we hold a competition and award the most the most innovative marketing educator in our field. We announce the winner​ of the award during the AMA Summer Marketing Educators’ Conference. 

In order to provide our members with critical resources for their achievement, we post the call for papers and other specials relevant to academia from the journal Marketing Education Review. We also post links for Teaching Tips courtesy of The Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) at Colorado State University.
