CSEAR has a long history of supporting social and environmental accounting education.
Teaching cases are an important contribution to education. Teaching cases are expected to outline a real or fictional situation about a company/organisation which provides a tool to explore a particular area of class content. As such, they provide information on a company/organisation, and usually a specific event, which requires classroom engagement to address or debate. They are informed by theory – both topic and pedagogy. Cases are usually presented outlining all the information needed to investigate an issue or event and then have a series of questions for which the instructor can use in the classroom to support the case. Teaching cases are expected to have a teaching note accompanying them. This outlines the case for the instructor and gives sufficient information for its use.
CSEAR Members have produced award winning high quality teaching cases and supporting pedagogical notes, including those listed below. Teaching cases and other educational resources are available to all CSEAR members.
