Case Method


Definition: the Case Method is an active learning approach based on analyzing and discussing a case study. Contrary to the traditional lecturing method, which is based on the transfer of knowledge by a teacher professing a series of content declarations without much or any interaction with the students, the focus of the CM is on participation by the students through dialogue (discussion) and questions (Dialectics).
Advantages of the CM (vs. traditional lecturing) are:
1. Due to participation, it is more effective
2. Builds critical thinking
3. Exercises judgment and action-taking
4. Democratic, two-way
5. Inductive learning from experience
6. The teacher learns too
7. More fun
