Apart from the regular submission categories, we invite the submission of teaching cases that would be useful to the field as pedagogical materials that students would find exciting and thoughtful.
Teaching cases must include teaching notes when originally submitted, and the teaching notes will be reviewed. Teaching notes will not be included in the ICIS Proceedings, but rather will be provided directly to instructors on request by case authors.
Teaching cases may only be submitted to the IS Curriculum and Education track.
Review Criteria for Teaching Cases
- Case clarity: The case is clearly written and readable for a student audience.
- Issue identification and development: The key issues in the case are well-developed and identifiable by a student reader.
- Completeness: The case includes the information necessary for conducting an appropriate analysis of the issue(s) raised.
- Relevance: The case addresses a topic of importance to IS practice. The students will learn something important from studying it. The case has “substance.”
- Interest: The case is presented in an interesting way. It addresses a topic likely to sustain a student’s interest. The instructor will find it interesting to teach.
- Effectiveness of exhibits: The case exhibits are helpful to the student and useful for teaching the case.
- Literature integration: The authors have effectively utilized existing literature (concepts, models, frameworks, news reports, etc.) for teaching the case.
- Overall utility: The information provided is developed well enough to help an instructor in preparing to teach the case.
