In Vol. 33 (1), we focused the discussion on cases in the classroom, and we asserted that cases offer value for student learning (Peters, Cellucci, and Ford, 2015). For this issue, we focus on how professors use cases in the classroom. Specifically, our goal is to develop a snapshot of how professors from various fields (e.g., accounting, management, marketing, healthcare, etc.) are using cases as experimental learning tools.

Thus, for this issue, our “From the Editors” article focuses on the development of a survey to be distributed during the spring of 2016 to assess the use of cases in the classroom. Our survey questions are based upon the research elaborated in Vol 33 (1) and summarized in the article for each survey section (Peters, Cellucci, and Ford, 2015).
