Register Now! Space is limited.

Building on the success of last year’s virtual workshop focused on writing and teaching cases reflecting under-represented identities, we invite you to enjoy the beautiful Providence College campus and Rhode Island seacoast for this year’s PCSB – The PhD Project Case Writing Workshop.

We are excited to come together to help first-time case writers:

  • understand the case writing and publishing process
  • create a draft of a case and teaching note that includes under-represented identities as a topic, protagonist, or focus
  • develop a community of case writers for continuing support
  • grow your case teaching skills, both in planning and delivery
