The Advanced Case Teaching workshop, led by a highly skilled and experienced case teaching practitioner, is packed with fresh ideas and inspiring insights to help you create and sustain an exciting and stimulating learning environment in your classroom.


Led by award-winning case author and teacher Kamran Kashani, this workshop for experienced case teachers will build on the fundamental principles of successful discussion leadership to explore and assess a wide range of different approaches to case teaching. Participants will be able to sharpen their case teaching skills; discover new and exciting ways to work with students in a classroom setting; and find out how to design an effective case-based course.


This workshop is suitable for experienced case teachers only. Our Introduction to Case Teaching workshop is designed for those with little or no experience of case teaching.
