Case Teaching Methodologies


The CASE Journal is pleased to partner with the CASE Association to produce this special issue of research articles on the teaching case method.

The purpose of this special issue is to produce a series of best-practice articles from educators successfully employing the case method within their classrooms. With the introduction of new technologies and disruptive forces in the modern world, case teaching has become challenging both in-person and online. The case community has observed many educators describing challenging in-class experiences using cases for the first time. Furthermore, the educators experienced in case teaching have also described confronting various situations in their online and in-person classrooms for which they had to improvise various solutions. It is clear that there is a pressing need for more resources with practical insights on this theme.

This SI will offer a unique and valuable contribution to case literature by bridging the gap between theory and practice, enhancing educational experiences, and addressing the evolving needs of instructors in the classroom.

Submissions should adhere to the topic of the special issue in order to be considered. Authors may be interested in the following potential and suggested themes:

- Online case teaching
- In-class case teaching
- Multi-media case teaching
- Innovative approaches to case teaching (gamification, interdisciplinarity, etc.)
- Team methodology for case teaching
- Individual methodology for case teaching
- What not to do when teaching cases

Submissions will be open globally. Authors are encouraged to reflect on the opportunity to examine the themes listed above through a variety of perspectives and contexts. Additional themes may be considered, but authors are encouraged to reach out to the TCJ team to ensure relevance prior to submission.
