Many good points about what makes a good case can be found at this site at the University of Buffalo, State University of New York, Case Method Teaching, National Centre for Case Study Teaching: http://ublib.buffalo.edu/libraries/projects/cases/teaching/good-case.html(accessed 20th July 2006)

The most famous exponents of case teaching in management is the Harvard Business School. Their site appears to have only limited guidelines about case teaching. Most of their intellectual property appears to be tied up in their books for sale about case teaching and writing. The website on case teaching at HBS is: http://www.hbs.edu/case/index.html(accessed 20th July 2006)

Some useful papers about case teaching can be found at University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Centre for Teaching Excellence Active Learning Case-Based Learning: http://cte.umdnj.edu/active_learning/active_case.cfm (accessed 20th July 2006)
