Case Method is the most well-known pedagogy amongst Management schools in the world. Case Method keeps the participant at the center of a class room rather than the case facilitator / Professor. Participants learn the tools, frameworks and theoretical underpinning of the discipline drawing from their application for problems encountered by protagonist in the case. Taking the view of the protagonist, the participant would get to appreciate the limitations and boundaries while applying their understanding of the discipline. It would also help the participants understand the biases and assumptions in managerial decision making.  Thus, an effective case discussion would elicit divergent multi stakeholder views while solving complex problems faced by managers in real situations. Case Method is known to mimic the real-world managerial problem solving.

This workshop would introduce participants to the case teaching which would include selection of the right cases, development of a teaching plan, discussion of resources available for becoming a good case facilitator. It would also enable participants to learn the tools required for leading effective case discussion while highlight some of the drawbacks of case based pedagogical approach. In the last session, some of the best practices in case-based pedagogy while highlighting issues surrounding online environments through a discussion.

The workshop would be very beneficial for both early stage career academics in International Business, Strategy, Marketing and Organizational Behavior disciplines. It would also be beneficial to academics moving into participant centered learning approaches such as cases and simulations. As of now, this workshop is physical for participants, the facilitators would be virtual.
