Helping students excel with cases
Learning with cases is a new and challenging experience for many students. The Case Centre offers special tailored sessions at universities and business schools to help students use case studies.
Experienced tutors help the students understand how to read and analyse a case and identify key issues. They learn how to prepare for and participate in class discussion and build their own confidence. Finally, they learn how to write about a case for an assessment or exam. These sessions can greatly enhance the case class experience of students and teachers.
Planning your student sessions
Student sessions can range from a 90 minute overview to longer, more interactive programmes. We work with you to establish what will suit your students best, and where the session(s) should fit in your course. The cost of each event is worked out on an individual basis and varies depending on location, travel costs, length of event and number of participants.
Comments from students
"I liked the whole session but particularly the fact that I was engaged in the learning process 100% of the time and even carried that outside of the classroom."
"Cases are an incredible technique to involve and learn! The workshop brought a proactive approach to understand and crack the case in a simple, efficient manner."
"I enjoyed the manner in which participation was encouraged. I got comfortable with it as the sessions progressed."
"The teacher was a learning facilitator, not just telling us how to do the case but inspiring us to participate and look at the cases from different perspectives."
The next step
If you would just like to explore the option of arranging a session for your students, our Events Team would love to hear from you. To help us with your enquiry please be prepared to discuss the type of student session you are interested in (eg short overview, interactive programme), when the session(s) might take place and the potential number of participants.
