Overview

The proposed one and a half days workshop aims to enable the development of writing case studies. The workshop is an intensive course on case writing. During this time, participants will learn the theory behind developing a good case study and the guiding principles to write case studies. By the end of the workshop, it is expected that participants will have built a strong foundation for developing their own cases. This is thus a great opportunity to develop valuable writing skills.

It is believed that using case studies in the classroom provides a means for abstract and conceptual ideas to be applied to practical, real-world business scenarios. Cases place students in real-life situations, forcing them to identify with the protagonist and come up with solutions to a plausible problem. As such, they turn students into active learners rather than passive receivers, helping them develop problem-solving and decision-making skills.

For the participants, we expect that developing in-house case studies would provide the following key benefits for their students/audience:
  • To demonstrate stronger critical thinking skills
  • Make connections across multiple content areas
  • Develop a deeper understanding of concepts
  • Be better able to view an issue from multiple perspectives
  • Take a more active part in class
  • Become more engaged
  • Develop positive peer to peer relationships

Training Objectives

At this very interactive and practical workshop, participants will learn about the case study: the history behind it, and its benefits and limitations. They will then be taught as to what makes a ‘good’ case. 

Instruction would be provided on how to design a case study – ensuring that the key areas of the introduction, body, conclusion and exhibits - are covered systematically.

The workshop would also include tips on how to teach a case.
Target Audience

Participants would include faculty, case writers, doctoral students and research staff from the academic community across management disciplines as well as representatives from business and the Government, such as heads of training departments, consultants and individuals teaching as visiting faculty at academic institutions.
