Writing and Publishing Strategy Case Studies for Impact

September 18, 2021 from 10:00h - 13:00h EDT

Sponsored by: Teaching Community
Organized by: Erica Berte
No application required

Workshop Description

This workshop aims to teach Strategy scholar-teachers how to write and publish their own strategy case studies, and make an impact while advancing the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). The session is designed for academics interested in reaching their course learning outcomes by writing their own case studies and using them in the classroom as a teaching strategy to engage students in the class discussion, promoting critical thinking, and making an impact on future business leaders. Furthermore, the session is addressed to those that want to publish their strategy case studies in reputable peer-reviewed journals.

The workshop is organized as a hands-on experience for participants. First, the main characteristics of the case study pedagogical technique will be discussed, followed by the way to publish it. Second, hot topics in the Strategy field will be addressed so attendees will be able to choose a relevant topic to write their own case study. Third, attendees will use a Strategy Case Study Workbook to guide them during the workshop to start developing their cases. Next, we will invite attendees to enter breakout rooms, considering the choices of topics they made. Participants will be encouraged to form partnerships to develop their case drafts. Experienced facilitators will assist the case development, followed by an open Q & A and feedback session. The session will conclude with closing remarks.

The workshop is organized and facilitated by experienced award-winning case scholars from different countries and universities, members of associations, and groups focused on new approaches to SoTL.
