CASE CONFERENCE & TEACHING CASES
The International Food and Agribusiness Management Association is committed to developing and showcasing best practice in case study writing, teaching, and learning to promote problem-solving and knowledge transfer skills in the next generation of agri-food management talent.
The Case Conference track of IFAMA’s academic Symposium is directed at a broad audience of professionals who are interested in developing effective food and agribusiness related cases and using them as learning tools, as well as for those interested in the specific case topics discussed. The Teaching Case Workshop also includes “featured cases” that are structured to provide constructive feedback to the case writers on their cases and discussion leadership skills. By modeling the case discussion process, we hope to encourage others to write cases or use cases (and the case discussion method) in their classes. IFAMA will showcases the best teaching case studies and awards recognizes the Best Teaching Case.
PRACTITIONER DISCUSSION SESSIONS
Practitioners who would like to host and facilitate a discussion around a topical issue during the conference are invited to submit an abstract of approximately 500 words no later than January 31, 2024. The abstract should include:
Results in terms of contribution to the practice of (continuous) innovation management. If your abstract is accepted you will be asked to submit a PowerPoint/Poster presentation, before April 30, 2024.
Please send abstracts for practitioners to Symposium Chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SPECIAL ISSUES AND PUBLICATION
The Scientific Committee will select the best papers presented at the conference and consider them for publication in a special issue of leading international academic journals such as the International Food and Agribusiness Review.
