An Introduction to Case Teaching

18 June 2014 at IESE Business School, Spain. Apply to attend

Are you interested in using cases to teach? Have you heard about the case method and would like to find out how your students might benefit? If you’re new to the case method, this workshop will provide a thorough grounding in case method teaching and will give you the inspiration, knowledge and confidence you need to develop into an effective case teacher.


This workshop is ideal for those new to case teaching who have very little or no experience of using cases in their classes. The benefits of using the case method will be explored and the tutor will work with participants to develop practical skills in case preparation and classroom delivery.


This workshop will be of benefit to new case teachers with little or no case teaching experience, including:
  • junior or senior faculty from any academic discipline
  • teachers considering case teaching
  • anyone unfamiliar with the case method who would like to find out more.
Our Advanced Case Teaching workshop is suitable for experienced case teachers.


Participants will gain a sound understanding of the basic principles of case teaching, and will:
  • understand how to prepare for a case class
  • learn how to lead a case discussion
  • explore the roles played by a case teacher before, during and after the teaching session
  • develop strategies for appraising the quality and effectiveness of cases
  • appreciate the benefits of a good teaching note
  • consider how to enhance a case class.
