How do I get access to teaching notes?

Access case studies teaching notes with an Emerald profile.

Teaching notes are accessible to teaching staff based at institutions who subscribe to any of our cases products:

  • The CASE Journal
  • Emerald eCases Collection
  • Emerald Emerging Markets Case Studies

To access teaching notes, users must first be authenticated by the subscribing institution (eCases access) and then be logged into their Emerald profile (teaching notes access).

If users have not been recognised as having access to the teaching notes, they will see this message when they click on the teaching notes tab.

The below instructions are displayed when clicking on the ‘contact us’ button in the ‘access options’ menu.

  1. For faculty to gain access to teaching notes, they must have an active Emerald profile.
  2. The faculty member must then contact [email protected] to verify that they are a member of teaching staff based at a subscribing institution.
  3. Once validated, the Emerald profile will be assigned faculty rights. This means that when the faculty member is logged in at a university site, they will see both the case and the teaching notes all in one place.

How can I develop my skills with the Emerald case hub?

By setting up a profile on the Emerald cases hub, authors, teaching staff, and students can access a series of free, comprehensive, online modules that cover all aspects of writing, teaching and learning with case studies.

Learning with case studies: This module takes students through the steps involved in reading and analysing a case and preparing for discussion before coming to class.

Teaching a case study: The pathways in this collection help case study teachers prepare for a case study lesson, facilitate a discussion in class, and teach a case study lesson online.

Writing a case study: The courses in this series provide valuable tips on writing a case study and teaching notes that asks students to propose solutions to real management challenges.

The Emerald cases hub has been developed with our Emerald cases editorial team, experienced case writers, and teachers.
