ISCAP-EDSIG recognizes that participants may have limited ability to travel due to institutional restrictions or underlying health concerns. This year’s conference will have a limited virtual option for accepted papers. Authors will have the ability to present their work live, engage with peers who are at the conference site, and view/engage with other paper presentations from one breakout track (approximately 35 presentations). Accepted papers for the virtual option are eligible for awards, journal publications, and conference proceedings per the published deadline dates for the in-person conference.

During registration, authors will indicate whether they intend to attend the conference in-person or virtually. Virtual registrations must be requested by October 20. We will do our best to accommodate changes if space permits. Previous registrations can be changed from virtual to in-person or vice-versa. Those who change from virtual to in-person will be charged an additional $70. Those who change from in-person to virtual be refunded $70. Refer to the cancellation policy for specifics regarding refund procedures.

The number of virtual attendees will be limited and is at the discretion of the conference committee. The total number of virtual attendees will be determined by the virtual registration deadline, October 1.

Virtual presentations will occur between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time. A session chair will be present to coordinate virtual conferencing software and facilitate the in-person audience question and answer portion.

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.

description   Student Template

description   Instructor Template

move_to_inbox   Submission System

Be sure to select Case - Teaching.

The following information should be prepared and submitted through our unified submission system.

  1. The papers submission site will request the following information:
    • Title
    • Authors/Institution
    • Case Abstract
  2. Prepare one ZIP folder/file to upload to the web site. This should contain:
    • One Word document for the case as it is to be given directly 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 - Guidelines & Requirements

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 in the student case paper, and in the instructor guide as well. 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. If more material is necessary to provide additional supporting detail (e.g., specific lab instructions), please include than in an Appendix.
  8. Please remove any identifying information in the properties section of the document.
  9. File format: Word (.docx) documents

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 or short sentence that you might see on a poster advertising a motion picture.
  2. Case abstract. In a few sentences, what is the business or organizational 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

Note from the Co-chairs

In the past several years we continue to grow the Teaching Cases division of the EDSIG Conference and ISEDJ significantly, in quality, variety, and numbers. 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 Clearwater Beach, Florida on Nov. 4-7. Please feel free to contact any of us if you have any questions!
