Teaching with Cases (third edition, 2017): Summary
This book is written for those interested in participative learning. It is designed to make life easier for all new case teachers and to expand the horizons of those more seasoned. Coverage includes preparation for class using the Case Teaching Plan, classroom management, evaluation of student contributions to class discussions, case use variations and case use in a non-case environment.
The proven concept of the Case Teaching Plan joins other concepts of the Case Difficulty Cube, The Three Stage Learning Process and the Case Preparation Chart to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of case teaching. Both veterans and newcomers alike can counsel students better using the cause and effect analysis presented in the feedback and counselling chapter. Anyone seriously interested in case teaching can use the tips, tactics and techniques spread throughout this book to experience more fully the joy of teaching with cases.
Teaching with Cases is only available as a two book set in combination with Learning with Cases. Teachers need to know how students learn with cases and they must give their students the tools to learn effectively with cases (see Learning with Cases only).
