IJTCS is a multidisciplinary source for research and teaching in all higher education disciplines and in the use of case studies as a teaching/research tool. Its unique value proposition is to gather an interdisciplinary forum of international scholars representing specialisations from business, marketing, finance, management, the social sciences and computer science/information technology. IJTCS delivers case studies aimed at supporting teaching, learning and research in academic and applied professional settings and interdisciplinary papers examining curricula, knowledge bodies, certification and professional issues
Topics covered include
- Teaching, learning and research
- The case study as a teaching and research methodology
- Management science
- Political Science
- Computer science
- Information systems and technology
- Software engineering
- Curricula structure/planning/bodies of knowledge for any/all the above
- Certification and professional training issues in higher education
IJTCS aims at publishing high quality research papers, reflective studies, case studies and "lessons learned" notes on any aspect of teaching, learning and research across the disciplines as well as the role of the case study as a teaching and research methodology. Each of these areas is a focus of interest and such diversity is reflected in the structure of the editorial team and the Editorial Board, providing specialisms in different areas.
The journal's goal is to produce papers of different kinds, from classroom-based empirical studies through comparisons of pedagogic approaches across institutions or countries and of different types from the practical to the theoretical. Case studies that provide insight on proven strategies or teaching patterns are also welcomed. In addition, papers related to curriculum, knowledge bodies, certification and professional issues are also welcomed, as they reflect an additional stage of the education process as part of life-long learning.
The objectives of IJTCS are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with today’s teaching and research issues in higher education and across local, regional and cross-national communities. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and innovative social issues affecting the topics' activities taking place in the global economy.
IJTCS aims to inform and provide guidance to educators at all levels on all aspects of computing and information technology.
IJTCS publishes original research papers providing significant results, and also communications innovative ideas and news, announcements and reviews regarding the topics of the journal.

Where have all the flowers gone?
27 September, 2023
Research in the International Journal of Teaching and Case Studies has shown how Miami International Airport (MIA) blossomed into the main entry point for 90% of fresh-cut flowers imported into the USA. The seed of the study used the Theory of Constraints (TOC) to analyze the way in which the airport optimized its operations to handle perishable cut flowers efficiently. The work by Janaina Siegler of the Lacy School of Business at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana, shows that crucial to its growth was addressing the need for a robust cold chain infrastructure given the highly perishable nature of cut flowers. Temperature control during transportation and storage is imperative and so MIA streamlined the unloading and storage in temperature-controlled warehouses that could cope with the hothouse that is the city of Miami [...]More details...
A different kind of peer pressure
23 November, 2023
A study in the International Journal of Teaching and Case Studies has looked at the dynamics of student peers helping each other with their educational needs. Peer mentoring and collaborative learning are highlighted but the research shows a worrying phenomenon whereby a high-performing student becomes resentful of a fellow student to whom they give assistance when that student then outperforms them and achieves higher grades. Such resentment might well scupper efforts to encourage peer mentoring and collaborative learning and must be taken into consideration when developing educational programs to facilitate such approaches to study. Shih Yung Chou, Niyati Kataria, Shainell Joseph, and Charles Ramser of the Dillard College of Business Administration at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, USA, conducted a qualitative study of 113 undergraduate students enrolled on a business program. They explored the students' motivations behind peer assistance and the interplay between assistance and resentment, and the impact these had on subsequent student behaviour [...]More details...
