Undergraduates and Cases: Transform your Teaching

17 May 2019, Friends House, London, UK

Apply to attend

Do you teach undergraduates? Or are you new to teaching undergraduates? Are you looking for fresh and exciting ways to engage and motivate your undergraduate students? If so, this Inspiration Day is for you.

Overview

The case method has been associated with post-graduate management education for over a century – but a growing number of teachers are discovering that it’s also an exciting and highly effective way to teach undergraduates (bachelor’s degree students).

Come on our Inspiration Day to make sure your undergraduates don’t miss out. You’ll hear from a number of expert speakers, experience a case class and have the opportunity to ask questions, share experiences and gain the confidence and know-how you will need to start using cases with your undergraduates. 

Participants

This Inspiration Day will be of benefit to faculty who are interested in using the case method to teach undergraduates.

Participants may include:

  • experienced faculty
  • faculty who are new to teaching
  • faculty who are new to teaching undergraduates
  • PhD students who are about to start teaching.

Objectives

Participants will:

  • gain an appreciation of why the case method is so effective when used with undergraduates
  • experience a sample case class
  • learn new ideas for using cases with undergraduates
  • get expert tips and tricks for dealing with younger students and larger classes
  • explore and dispel some of the myths surrounding the use of cases with undergraduates
  • share experiences on how to best apply the case method to students who have limited work experience
  • discover how to source and write cases for undergraduate audiences.
After the workshop participants will be able to:
  • incorporate the case method into their undergraduate teaching
  • source or begin writing suitable cases for undergraduate teaching
  • judge at what point during a course or module the case method can best be introduced
  • overcome potential barriers of using the case method with undergraduates.
