A good case writer can explain a highly technical subject in a non-technical way and engage readers with a vivid story. At the workshop, you have the opportunity to develop your case with professional guidance while learning the art and science of case writing. 

Rotterdam School of Management (RSM)’s Case Development Centre (CDC) is organizing an online case writing course to help academics and practitioners develop teaching cases. The workshop – structured into two synchronous modules – will give participants the confidence and equip them with the skill to create their own cases effectively. The last (optional) asynchronous module will serve as a coaching session, helping participants turn their drafts into final products that they can use in class or submit for publication.  

This workshop will be facilitated by Tao Yue, Managing Editor, and Carla Gatt, Senior Case Writer, at the RSM CDC.
