Our study aims to contribute to the higher education literature by unpacking how academic Communities of Practice (CoP) support development of teaching as a professional skill. In this study, we focus is on a series of case teaching and writing workshops conducted in Turkey for business and management scholars. The purpose of the workshops was to enhance the usage of case studies in business and management education at the university level in Turkey. The data for this study were collected via semi-structured interviews from a theoretical sample among participants of case workshops who succeeded in completing the authorship of at least one teaching case and its associated teaching note. Our findings reveal that these workshops sowed the seeds towards the development of an academic CoP, where social learning and knowledge transfer occurred through group interaction.
