AABS Case Writing & Teaching Workshop

  • University of South Africa School of Business Leadership

  • 06/09/2017-08/09/2017

Summary: Experienced, well-trained case writers bring to life real situations, which when brought into the classroom, create powerful management education tools.
Details: The overall objective of the workshop is to build capacity in academic faculty and case writers that will enable them to write and teach business management cases that will develop management and leadership competencies in the participants that are enrolled in programmes offered by the business schools. By the end of the workshop, the participants will have been exposed to, and will have had the opportunity to, practice case writing, case teaching and related pedagogical skills.

Workshop Schedule

Whereas the schedule is organized around the main themes of the workshop i.e. case teaching and case writing, the delivery methodology recognizes that these themes are interrelated.  The workshop is delivered by faculty who are experienced in both case writing and case teaching. Afternoon sessions are predominantly practical hands-on giving the participants opportunity to practice what is delivered in the morning sessions.

Day 1: Case Writing

Objective: By the end of the day, the participants will be aware of the key considerations in identifying a business management scenario for case writing, strategies for a successful case writing and how to write an accompanying case teaching guide.

Day 2: Case Teaching

Objective:  By the end of the day, the participants will have been exposed to the case study methodology, how to deliver an engaging case study session and link the case learning points to theoretical concepts in management.

Day 3: Case Enactment

Objective: By the end of the day, the participants will be aware of how to use the programme participants to enact a typical business management scenario e.g. by using role plays and using them to demonstrate management theories and concepts.
