Case studies are true stories, “reality bites,” that educators employ to bridge the gap between theory and practice. They also serve to create new dynamics in the classroom by breaking down the traditional role of professors — they become facilitators of a more student-centered learning process. The following series is designed to explore the case study method and strengthen the use of these powerful pedagogical tools.
Session I: Innovative Practices Using Case Studies
Tuesday, September 22, 12:30-2:30 p.m., 14-270
This session will introduce the series and highlight current
practices by Baruch professors who use cases and other similar
artifacts to involve students in the analysis of situations related to
professional practice. List of speakers:
Session II: Teaching with Cases
Tuesday, October 20, 12:30-2:30 p.m., Oak Room (Newman
Institute), 137 East 22nd St.

course syllabus, and how to manage the classroom process of
teaching with cases. Provisional list of speakers:
Session III: Preparing Case Studies
Tuesday, November 17, 12:30-2:30 p.m., 14-270

online videos, and how to write case studies from scratch.
