oikos Case Teaching Initiative is intended to complement the oikos Case Writing Competition and annual case writing workshops (held at the Academy of Management Conference in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012). Through this combination of activities we hope to provide a diverse and valuable resource for case instructors and promote further integration of sustainability-related topics in the curriculum of business schools and universities.
The first element of the oikos Case Teaching Initiative is a quarterly periodical oikos Case Quarterly: Teaching Cases in Action. In this regular publication we hope to create a forum for discussing methods of teaching sustainability, management and entrepreneurship using case studies. We intend to do this through interviews and commentary from leading case writers. Download the most recent Issue 9 (Energy) and subscribe for oikos Case Quarterly. You can also download our previous issues: Issue 1 (Introduction), Issue 2 (Agriculture and Rural Businesses), Issue 3 (Sustainable Mobility), Issue 4 (Water), Issue 5 (Sustainable Lifestyles), Issue 6 (Sustainable Housing), Issue 7 (Cross-sector Partnerships) and Issue 8 (Forestry).
The second element of the oikos Case Teaching Initiative is podcasts. Listen to our latest podcasts with Jonathan Doh (Professor of Management at the Villanova School of Business) and Michael V. Russo (Professor of Sustainable Management at the University of Oregon). Other audio interviews in the oikos Podcast series can be accessed here. You can also listen to all oikos podcasts via iTunes.
