ISB Case Writing and Teaching Workshop 2020

Participative and collaborative learning has proven to be an exciting alternative to traditional management pedagogy.  Today’s students demand an active role in their own learning. Teaching with 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.

The Centre for Learning and Management Practice (CLMP) at the Indian School of Business (ISB), in its endeavour to promote effective learning and teaching with cases, offers Case Writing and Teaching Workshops through the year.

The intent of these workshops is to train high-potential faculty and case writers in the case writing and case teaching process, and to develop a case writing and case teaching culture in Indian management schools.

Conducted by experienced faculty, experts in the case method, each intensive one and a half day workshops will cover the fundamentals of both case writing and case teaching.

The workshop will start with outlining the importance of case study methodology as a pedagogical approach for active learning.  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, participants would have built a strong foundation for developing their own cases. This is thus a great opportunity to develop valuable writing skills. By inspiring you to write and use your own cases, this workshop will also assist in improving your teaching. The workshop would also include tips on how to teach a case effectively.
