Science & Practice Friday
Friday at the EAWOP congress will focus strongly on aspects of practice in our profession and acknowledges that Researchers, Teachers and Practitioners often fail to recognise that they often work in silos and thus fail to benefit from synergies and fail to speak with a common voice that could have massive impact on the world of work.
A range of sessions has therefore been scheduled for S&P Friday including Practice focussed symposia and oral papers, demonstration sessions and a special stream entitled ‘Science & Practice Work Together’.
Science & Practice Work Together
This stream within the congress provides a full day of four sessions that can be sampled individually or as a connected set of interactive opportunities culminating in a final discussion session. Each contribution will bring together academics and practitioners to work closely together on topics relevant to the changing world of work such as new performance management practices, youth employment and leading hybrid teams.
The first session, Have practitioners gone wild? Goal setting and feedback interventions in practice will be led by Colin Roth and Roman Soucek. This session will use a “Bar Camp” interactive format where, next to the experts’ proposed workshop topics, delegates can actively pitch and vote for their own topics to be explored during the session. Across a few different workshops, attendees will explore how interventions using new approaches to manage performance in organizations can be implemented and linked to firm level performance.
The second session, Better futures for young people and organizations will be led by Angela Carter and Belgin Okay-Somerville using an interactive workshop format to consider how better futures can be created for both young people and organizations.
Session three, Leading hybrid teams: Unique challenges and opportunities, led by Eleni Giannakoudi and Anita Keller will focus on the unique challenges and opportunities associated with leading hybrid teams. This interactive session will use small groups to explore the challenges, opportunities and best practice involved in leading hybrid teams.
The day ends with an interactive session, Our learning about Science and Practice working together with experts such as Helen Baron, Diana Rus and Angela Carter facilitating discussion aimed at exploring what has been learned through co-creation of work and organizational psychology knowledge and practice.
