At this meeting, Jim and JoAnn Carland will be offering two workshops on Wednesday, October 12.

Carland at their personal website (

Case Writing Workshop

There has been a growing interest in the area of case writing, and the Journal of the International Academy for Case Studies is one of the fastest growing of the Journals affiliated with Allied Academies. One of the advantages to writing cases is that you receive credit for two publications for each case you write – one for the case itself, and one for the instructor’s note, which is published in a separate issue. Having co-founded more than a dozen companies, taught several thousand students and consulted with several hundred entrepreneurs, Jim and JoAnn have a vast array of knowledge on how real life situations can be turned into learning opportunities in the classroom. In this workshop they will share this knowledge as well as the technical aspects of case writing.

Publish or Perish Workshop

The subject of this workshop is getting your research published. Jim and JoAnn became academics in 1982 and immediately became involved with research and publications. Over the years they have written more than a dozen books, published more than 70 articles in scholarly journals and more than 200 papers in proceedings. In this workshop they will share what they have learned in their 30 years of research experience, and show you how to publish rather than perish.
