Western Connecticut State University (WCSU) is proud to announce an exciting case writing workshop – Learning the Basics of Good Case Writing – summer of 2013, co-sponsored with the Society for Case Research (SCR). This conference is conveniently located on the WCSU campus in Danbury, Connecticut (66 miles from the ‘Heart’ of New York – Times Square).
Do you want to learn ‘how to’ write good case studies for classroom use, but feel overwhelmed by the prospect of writing a case study. This workshop is for you! Experts in case writing from SCR will work with you to understand how to begin the process of case writing to how to get your case ready for publication.
Did you know that AACSB endorses many forms of scholarly research, including learning and pedagogical research? And did you know that in an AACSB survey, over 36% of business deans stated their school emphasized learning and pedagogical research more than discipline-based scholarship? Articles or cases with instructional materials in refereed learning-oriented journals are a form of learning and pedagogical research. Individuals interested in exploring case writing as an alternative to traditional research are encouraged to attend.
SCR is the home to three Cabell listed, blind-refereed case journals – Business Case Journal; Journal of Critical Incidents; Journal of Case Studies (www.sfcr.org). Cases published in these journals are available through SCR and other outlets as Pearson, McGraw Hill, Cengage, XanEdu, and EbscoHost. Come this summer and learn the basics of good case writing from experts in the field, and have fun along the way!
