The Case Centre Connect Issue 19

Dear colleague

Welcome to our New Year issue of Connect!

Our featured cases include Adopting a Learning Management System by Rik Paul, recipient of one of our Case Writing Scholarships. Well done, Rik! We also explore Sherry Hunt’s extraordinary story in Through the Eyes of a Whistle Blower, while in Fighting an Invisible Crime we discover how women and girls in Guatemala are gaining rights and protection.

Our fourth featured case, Using Satellite Data to Insure Livestock aims to encourage students to use their business skills for the benefit of the developing world. You can also meet Sandra Vandermerwe in our ‘5 minutes with’ feature, find out about our brand new online case submission service, and discover the similarities and differences between problem-based learning and the case method.

Best wishes
