Case Based Pedagogy

Case Based Pedagogy

Case-based teaching is an active learning strategy in which students read and discuss complex, real-life scenarios that call on their analytical thinking skills and decision-making.With case-based teaching, students develop skills in analytical thinking and reflective judgment by reading and discussing complex, real-life scenarios.

  • The case method packs more experience into every hour of learning than any other instructional approach. That’s why it forms the basis of learning at business schools around the world.
  • Case teaching makes the knowledge of the whole class: Case discussion transfers experience-based knowledge, so the students learn not only from the teacher but from each other by bringing their collective experience to solve a problem by arguing for it and shaping it to fit to a context.
  • Case teaching surfaces the depth of problems and many alternative perspectives and solutions, more deeply and more extensively than can be done by a single instructor.
  • The “case method” is an approach to learning that encourages students to extract useful lessons from the experiences of others.
  • Provide a simulated business environment, allowing students to learn by taking a position – bringing students as close as possible to real business situations. “Put yourself in the shoes of the Protagonist?”
  • Develop judgment and enhance learning- not only learn the theory but also apply it.
  • Trains the students not just for finding a solution but helps to understand the depth of business problems and formulate alternative perspectives.
  • Cases are very useful in the development of skills, approaches, and a philosophy of management.
  • The philosophy is that people are important and can “make things happen.”
  • The very art of listening to the ideas of others and of having your ideas listened to in the case classroom highlights the importance of the individual and emphasizes team effort to support the discussion
  • Help students develop diagnostic skills in a world where markets and technologies are constantly changing. “The purpose of business education is to teach men [and women] to think in the presence of new situations. This requires a bifocal perspective: the ability to characterize quickly both the common and the distinctive elements of business problems.
  • Case discussions help students develop persuasive skills. Management is a social art; it requires working with and through others. The ability to tell a compelling story, to marshal evidence, and to craft persuasive arguments is essential to success. It is for this reason that business schools puts such a heavy premium on class participation. Beyond grading, students also receive regular feedback from professors about the quantity, quality, and constructiveness of their comments
  • A steady diet of cases leads to distinctive ways of thinking—and acting. The case system, puts the student in the habit of making decisions. Day after day, classes revolve around protagonists who face critical choices. Delay is seldom an option. Both faculty and students cite the “bias for action” that results—what I call “courage to act under uncertainty.” That courage is essential for corporate leadership. The businessman’s stock in trade is his willingness to take risks, to decide upon and implement action based on limited knowledge.” Cultivating these attitudes key to build that leadership skills.
