EDSIGCON 2018

Call for Teaching Cases

Objective

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.

  • import_contacts   July 31: 2nd deadline for journal consideration (Top 15% invited to ISEDJ)
  • check   August 15: Deadline for inclusion in proceedings

Submission Instructions

The following information should be prepared and submitted through our unified submission system. Be sure to select Case - Teaching.

move_to_inbox Submission System

  1. The papers submission site will request the following information:
    • Title
    • Authors/Institution
    • Hook Statement
    • Case Abstract
  2. Prepare one ZIP folder/file to upload to the web site. This should contain:
    • One Word document to be given to students
    • One Word document to be viewed only by the instructor
    • Any other materials pertaining to the case, for example, PowerPoint presentations, additional handouts, data workouts, database files, video files, audio files and image files.

Teaching Cases - Document Style & Formatting

  1. Paper format: Please follow the guidelines as detailed in the template provided for submissions to the general category
  2. Please include as much data and direction as possible. This may include data sets, or links to software downloads.
  3. Multimedia materials are strongly encouraged – photographs (in public domain), videos and audio files should be included when appropriate. This is one of the ways in which we hope to distinguish cases presented through EDSIG/ISEDJ.
  4. When possible - portray real people, organizations and situations. Certainly, you may base the case on data gathered during case-based research. However information must be disguised to avoid identifying the subjects of the study or violating agreements.
  5. Avoid words that indicate your own value judgments in the case. However such words spoken or written by people depicted in the case are appropriate. Cases should be "open ended" to allow for discussion on all sides of an issue.
  6. Case scenarios should be written in the past tense.
  7. Please limit the text of the students’ material to 5,000 words or fewer.
  8. Please remove any identifying information in the properties section of the document.
  9. File format: Word (.docx) documents

Teaching Cases - Instructor's Materials

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.

  1. "Hook" statement that generates interest in the case. Think of this like a phrase that you might see on a poster advertising a motion picture.
  2. Case abstract. In a few sentences, what is the business situation and what are the business problem(s) to which the case applies?
  3. List of pre- or co-requisite key terms, concepts, skills/techniques. This will help instructors help students in concept formation by identifying specific terms and concepts that students must be able to define in order to achieve the analysis goals of the case.
  4. Suggested questions for prompting discussion along with possible responses.
  5. Pre- and post-case questions designed specifically to support assessment of learning.
  6. Teaching tips based on piloting of the case including remarks regarding material that seems especially difficult for students to grasp.
  7. Masters of slides and handouts, if applicable.
  8. Data workouts, if applicable.
  9. Be sure to include statements on: the audience this material is targeted to, both in level of student and course type; how many times this case has been used in a classroom; estimated time of preparation for the professor; and estimated time for completion by students

Teaching Cases - Note from the chair

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 15/31 for ISEDJ consideration and August 15 for conference proceedings inclusion.

We look forward to seeing you in Norfolk, Virginia on Oct. 31 - Nov. 3. Please feel free to contact if you have any questions!
