The Case method teaching aims at creating this real-life situation in classroom and force student to analyze, plan and take actions. By applying the case method to business education, we break the boundaries of passive learning to encourage students to become active participants in their own progress. The information in the case stimulates educated conversation, concerning possible outcomes. Every case has a central discussion point, dilemma and angle. With each case, students empathize with a decision maker (“The protagonist”), analyze varied and frequently ambiguous data and assume responsibility for an action plan that effectively resolves the case’s business challenge.
Teaching through cases, have proved to be the most effective lifelong learning methodology. But finding a relevant, involving, thought provoking case is not easy. Also teaching a multidimensional, multidisciplinary case had its own challenges. The best solution can be developing your own cases. But finding an interesting and relevant topic, the pertinent information, setting the context and raising issues which stimulate discussion and above all writing a coherent focused and challenging case is not easy. To resolve some of these issues AIMA is organizing this workshop focused on DEVELOPING, WRITING and TEACHING through cases.
