Case study teaching involves the use of real world situations as a basis for learning. Case study teaching:

  • Engages students in working on ill-structured or amiguous, complex, real or realistic problems or issues
  • Relies on students to explore the topic and use critical thinking to come to a solution, decision, or action, rather than relying on instructors to explain the problem or issue and report the solution
  • Puts the instructor in the role of "coach" rather than information deliverer, and puts students in the position of decision-makers
