Workshop Information

This day-long workshop is planned to be an immersive experience on cases within the framework of two themes: using cases for student engagement in the classroom and leveraging case research to pursue two very different publication streams.

Segment 1 - Two Models of Student Engagement: The Instructor-Facilitated Model and the Experiential Model (9:00-13:00)
The first segment will focus on Teaching with Cases using two models of student engagement. Experienced and award-winning faculty will showcase how to lead and facilitate interactive case discussions through

  • the traditional Instructor-led case discussion model
  • an experiential model

Segment 2 - Publishing Your Case Research: Two Paths to Impact (13:00-16:00)
The goal of the second segment is to demonstrate how to leverage case research and seek two different publication pathways.  Award-winning authors, case journal editors, and experienced scholars will discuss how to publish teaching cases as well as develop theory from case research. Sample discussion topics include how to select the right case topic, engage in primary and/or secondary data collection, positioning your case, developing the case and its teaching note, and seeking publication outlets. The second half of this afternoon session will focus on strategies for developing theory and publishing articles in traditional scholarly academic journals.
