About Case-Study Alliance Turkey
The Case-Study Alliance Turkey (CAT) Case Collection is one of a number of outputs from the CAT Project, which was made possible by the collaborative support of stakeholders from ITU ARI Teknokent, Istanbul Technical University, Middle East Technical University, Rotterdam School of Management and SMART Partners.
This three-year project received Erasmus+ funding, which enabled a number of workshops to be developed across Turkey to showcase the case study method, and to encourage greater development and uptake of case teaching and case writing skills from participants representing many different universities across Turkey.
As part of this project, participants were invited to prepare and submit a case study for inclusion in the CAT Case Collection. Whilst many scholars continue to develop their case content, this initial collection represents a variety of different management contexts, which are presented in a range of different formats. Each case in the collection has an accompanying teaching note, and some case authors also provide accompanying slides or other online resources.
About the free case collection
The CAT Team has selected and supported the development of these cases because it is believed they represent a broad cross-section of different contexts for Turkish management education. These cases, available free of charge, are written by Turkish scholars, about Turkish management situations, for Turkish students/learners. These cases incorporate a range of different management disciplines and are written for use with both undergraduate and postgraduate learners.
Each case provides the case tutor with the opportunity to develop a unique ‘classroom journey’ through the case data, guided by the case teaching note, to enable the learners to discuss, analyse, compare and contrast, make decisions and ultimately participate in a challenging management situation. After completion of each case ‘journey’ the learner can then be invited to reflect on what aspects of learning they have discovered, which they can take back to their real-world once the discussion has concluded. Moreover, in this way, the cases provide opportunities for learning through input, discovery, and reflection.
