Lab 3 – Revitalising classes when teaching with case studies in person and online
Date: Tuesday, June 13, 2023
Time: 3.30 pm – 4.50 pm
Room: B1.001/002 Dargan
This workshop, led by Dr. Scott Andrews and The Case Centre, will demonstrate how to revitalise using cases in your classroom, both in-person and online. It will be an invaluable opportunity for delegates to find out more about the case method and case teaching. It is a great introduction to case teaching for newcomers and also suitable for case teachers looking for fresh inspiration in the classroom. It will demonstrate why the case method is such a powerful learning tool in management education whether used in online teaching or in the physical classroom.
Participants will be able to explore how to develop and facilitate both large group discussions and small group work via breakout rooms, and the workshop will incorporate real case examples, all of which support rich learning experiences. The tutor will show how different cases can provide the basis for dynamic classroom discussions leading to new insights and understanding that meets pre-determined learning objectives across a multitude of disciplines within management education.
Throughout the session, the tutor will demonstrate how to ensure maximum participant involvement and get the most out of the case study. By providing feedback on the mechanics of the teaching session both during and afterwards, the tutor will illustrate best practice and provide useful hints and tips on how to improve the classroom experience for both students and teachers. The tutor will also explain the key principles of the case method, discuss the benefits and pitfalls, share good practice for online delivery, and encourage delegates to reflect on their own experiences.
