Teaching with cases isn't easy. It takes preparation, skill and talent to effectively use cases to meet your learning objectives. In this webinar you will learn about 4 common mistakes that case teachers make, and how to avoid them.
Lack of clear, measurable teaching objectives. Without clear objectives, the professor will not know how to lead the discussion, nor how to assess whether or not the students actually learned what was intended.
Lack of understanding the role of the instructor in case teaching. (Should you be a "sage-on-the-stage" or "guide-on-the-side"?)
Too much lecturing.
- Poor teaching planning. This could include everything from not having enough background information about the featured company to not properly connecting the case study to the rest of the course.
