Session Chair: Michael Biderman

More and more researchers in the field of management and organizational research are using Structural Equations Modeling (SEM) to investigate their theories and test their data. Journal editors now require authors to test their hypotheses using SEM before their research can be considered publishable. If you want to use SEM but don’t know where to start, this workshop is for you. In this 3-hour workshop, you will learn how to analyze data using structural equation modeling with Mplus, a powerful and flexible software package for conducting structural Equations Modeling (SEM). The workshop will start with an introduction on how to use Mplus to perform Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) and basic structural models. Following the lecture, there will be time for you to practice with Mplus at the end of the workshop. No prior knowledge of Mplus is required. A basic knowledge of regression analysis and exploratory factor analysis are helpful, but not required. You will need to bring your own laptop to the workshop and download a copy of the trial version of Mplus at The trial version is good for 30 days and will allow you to analyze data with a limited number of variables.

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) research has gained increased prominence as external stakeholders demand evidence of student learning and accreditors require institutions to show evidence of impact. In this session, designed for educators at all levels of experience, participants will be provided with general information about authoring for SoTL journals, examine the basis for establishing impact of articles published in these journals, and gain hands-on reviewer experience by evaluating and providing practice feedback for parts of real SoTL submissions. In this session, prospective authors will meet with editors from the Journal of Management Education, the CASE journal, and Organization Management Journal to gain insight into publishing with a view to enhancing the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Eastern Academy of Management is proud to host Dr. Debra L. Shapiro (Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland) as the EAM 2017 Keynote Speaker.

Among Dr. Shapiro’s immense list of accomplishments include being former President of Academy of Management and Division Chair of Academy of Management’s Conflict Management Division. In addition, Dr. Shapiro’s primary research areas include:

  • Managing conflict in organizations and teams
  • Managing perceptions of organizational injustice
  • Cross-functional or international-diversity
  • Negotiations and third-party interventions, impression-managing strategies

Thus making Dr. Shapiro the perfect fit for EAM 2017’s theme of Manageable Conflict.
