Are you interested in teaching with cases both in class and online? Are you looking for new and exciting ways to reinvigorate your case teaching? This two-day workshop will give fresh inspiration to your case teaching.


On day one, participants will focus on best practices for facilitating case discussions in class in this intensive and interactive hands-on teaching workshop. This session includes the opportunity to practise case teaching in a safe and supportive environment.

On day two, participants will discover how case teaching can move online. The programme will also explore how case teaching differs by audience: from undergraduates to graduates to executives.


This workshop will be of benefit to a wide audience, including those interested in:

  • using cases for teaching, in-class or online
  • reflecting on their own teaching
  • improving their case teaching and facilitation skills.

Participants may include:

  • faculty and trainers from all sectors or disciplines within management education, teaching at any level from undergraduate to executive
  • faculty and trainers from a wide range of other disciplines with some connection to or interest in management education.


Participants will:

  • reflect on their own classroom teaching
  • understand the prerequisites for case teaching
  • practise case teaching in a safe environment
  • learn how to optimise for an online (asynchronous and synchronous) teaching setting
  • learn how to evaluate success factors for any given audience.

After the workshop participants will be able to:

  • choose appropriate cases for their students
  • lead a case teaching session with confidence in-class and online (asynchronous and synchronous)
  • structure and pace a case teaching session
  • deal with any student response – including silence
  • achieve their learning objectives in the classroom.
