The objective of the teaching case track is to provide a venue for the presentation and publication of short, high quality teaching cases for use in the classroom. We encourage traditional scenario based cases that become a starting point for discussions and research. We also encourage submissions for lab exercises, or other technology based experiences, that become the foundation for further experiments, discussions, and research.
The following information should be prepared and submitted through our unified submission system. Be sure to select Case - Teaching.
The objective is to encourage the use of cases by enabling colleagues to quickly assess the usefulness of a case and then use it with minimum preparation.
In the past several years we have been able to grow the Teaching Cases division of the EDSIG Conference and ISEDJ significantly. The amount, quality, and variety of the submissions has improved each year. We would like to extend to you an invitation to help us continue to grow this area of our organization by sharing your work with your peers and colleagues.
In reflecting on the ideas behind the EDSIG, CONISAR conferences and our journals ISEDJ, JISAR, and JISE – missions that include providing IS educators with the latest research in educational techniques, processes and technology – we are continuing our project of collecting approaches and experiences that have been proven to work in the classroom, have them peer reviewed, and available to beginning professors as well as those seasoned educators looking for new and fresh exercises for their courses. We are building a repository of materials created by us and for us that can be utilized in our classrooms and courses with confidence and ease of adoption.
With that mandate in mind, we accept submitted papers in two specific areas to the Teaching Case division. The first is the more traditional "Case Study" format where you provide a situational environment that students will then use as a platform to perform further research, compose position papers, dissect decision making, or offer up alternative solutions to the problems presented within. The second area is an expanded opportunity to present practical labs, experiments, hands on exercises, or other lesson frameworks that can easily be adapted by other professors and utilized in their course environments. Unlike pedagogical papers submitted through the regular research paper track, these teaching cases should be focused on the classroom experience. Just as with the traditional case study, these teaching cases should also include extensive notes to explain the experience and application of the skills and concepts highlighted in the exercise/lab.
We need your submissions to make this work!
Submissions will be considered for a "Best Case" award at the conference, and will also be considered for publication for a special "Teaching Cases" edition of the ISEDJ.
The deadlines are as follows: June 15 for consideration for the "Best Case" award, July 15 for ISEDJ consideration and August 15 for conference proceedings inclusion.
We look forward to seeing you in Austin, Texas on November 5-8. Please feel free to contact if you have any questions!
