09:00 - 10:00

Cases have been shown to be highly impactful in giving voice to faculty writing about their local and regional business cultures, voices that are often underrepresented in other forms of publication. This webinar will explore the process of creating teaching cases, and the potential for creating and delivering impact throughout the cycle of creation, teaching and distribution. We will highlight the value that comes from writing your own case and give some pointers to the common components of cases that are popular with faculty and students in classrooms around the world. Above all the webinar will highlight the impactful contribution made by case studies in learning, accreditation, and strengthening vital links between faculty, schools and industry.

The webinar will be hosted by Richard McCracken, Director of The Case Centre, the independent home of the case method, distributor of the world’s most diverse collection of teaching cases, and a leading provider of development and training for case teachers and writers.
