with Cases 1
following two factors are as important in Case Study Teaching as they
are in any other forms of teaching, perhaps even more so, because an instructor
has less control with case discussion than other forms of teaching.
do you want students to learn from the discussion of the case?
do they know already that applies to the case?
are the issues (central and peripheral) that may be raised in discussion?
the case "carry" the discussion (Is it appropriate to your objectives)?
Plan and prepare:
how the case and discussion will be
expected of students (written, submitted, papers?)
of time for the issues to be discussed
to be applied and/or extracted in discussion
the discussion (students', your own)
the participants (grades for participation?)
