The ecch Case Awards have been presented annually since 1991 to honour outstanding achievement in case development and to raise the profile of the case method of learning. The competition category, Innovation in Case Teaching, is designed to recognise dedicated management educators that are achieving excellence through innovative, creative approaches to case teaching.
Entrants must be teachers of management education with a current position at an academic or corporate organisation. PhD students with teaching responsibilities are eligible. Entries may be submitted from a single teacher or by a team of teachers. Teams of teachers may be from different institutions worldwide. Entrants should have practiced their innovative use of cases with students after November 2011.
This award is intended to encourage innovation in its widest sense. The category is broadly defined to offer recognition to a range of circumstances, from the adoption of new technology to being a pioneer of case use at your organisation.

Entrants must provide a brief statement explaining their innovative use of cases in business education teaching. The statement should include why and how this example positively affected student learning. The entrant’s overall teaching philosophy must also be summarised.
Entry statements must be accompanied by supporting evidence in the form of short testimonials from up to two students and two colleagues (a minimum of one of each). Other supporting documentation (eg video clips or statistical evidence of success) is not essential but will be accepted and taken into consideration by the judging panel. Entrants must submit a copy of the case or case material they are using.
Recognition and prize
This competition category forms part of the ecch Case Awards that recognise outstanding achievement in case development, and now case teaching, worldwide. Many high profile management educators have been recipients of the awards, view more details.
The competition winner will be announced with a press release in February alongside the 2014 award winners. This will be sent to key business education press contacts worldwide. Winning teachers will be internationally recognised by peers and will be offered the chance to raise their profile further by appearing in a feature article published on the ecch website and in ecch connect.
The winning teacher, or team of teachers, will receive a single prize of €1,500. They will also be presented with a trophy and a letter of recognition from the judging panel.
The 2013 Innovation in Case Teaching competition category will be judged by a panel of internationally renowned case teachers and authors.
