DOWNLOAD CALL FOR CASE STUDIES

Call for case studies and associated teaching notes – a new initiative designed to support members’ teaching, lead by Professor Marianna Sigala, UniSA

Following the Learning and Teaching Case Study workshop held at the July 2019 Mid-Year meeting, Springer have accepted CAUTHE’s book proposal to publish case studies in tourism, travel, events and hospitality. This book aims to address the important role of case studies in research and education and the lack of updated case studies in the wider tourism industry.

To that end, the book is looking for case studies that investigate topical and contemporary industry challenges and practices, and that can advance tourism research as well as be used for teaching purposes and enable educators to enhance their instructional practices.

Case studies, along with their teaching notes, will be published as book chapters in a book to be published by Springer later in 2020. Case studies need to focus on the tourism, travel, hospitality and events sectors. Case studies can refer to any subject area and/or disciplinary field (e.g. marketing, Human resources, operations, technology, and finance). To that end, the book is looking for case studies that investigate topical and contemporary industry challenges and practices, and that can advance research and education in the wider tourism field.
