Cleveland Teaching Collaborative: Author Guide

Each case study will be a reflection on your remote teaching and learning experiences, digital tool choices, data (formal or informal) and conclusions/recommendations for future practice. Fellow educators are our intended audience. We encourage you to emphasize the different aspects of your remote teaching and learning experience and your pedagogical approaches that would be useful to other educators.

You can reference these case studies from NYU Shanghai for examples:

Each case study will be published as a digital essay (we anticipate each essay will be no more than 2000 words) on the Cleveland Teaching Collaborative website ( It is our hope that this project is the start of a sustained conversation about pedagogy between CSU and K-12 educators. Although the case studies are essays, they can and should include links, videos, and/or images that support the essay.

Tips for Digital Essay Writing:

  1. Write in accessible language intended for a broad audience of readers.
  2. Tone can be less formal than a traditional academic journal.
  3. Cite any sources using parentheses and a works cited list. Remember that in a digital essay you can link out to materials as well.
  4. Make sure you have permission to use any images or media, this includes permission forms from students if you use images or cite their work.

Be sure to include the following header with your essay- it is not included in your word count.
