This third edition of Teaching and the Case Method is a further response to increased national and international interest in teaching, teachers, and learning, as well as the pressing need to enhance instructional effectiveness in the widest possible variety of settings. Like its predecessors, this edition celebrates the joys of teaching and learning at their best and emphasizes the reciprocal exchange of wisdom that teachers and students can experience. It is based on the belief that teaching is not purely a matter of inborn talent. On the contrary, the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that make for excellence in teaching can be analyzed, abstracted, and learned. One key premise of Teaching and the Case Method is that all teaching and learning involve a core of universally applicable principles that can be discerned and absorbed through the study and discussion of cases.

Drawing on experiences from a range of fields, including public administration, policy analysis, law, teacher training, ethics, and undergraduate education, this book is intended to be a practical, process-oriented guide to teaching, writing, and learning with cases. The guide is organized into four parts: (1) "Teaching with Cases: Principles" (concerned with the different meanings of the term "case method" in various domains of teaching, with sources of resistance to case teaching, and with strategic issues teachers face in deciding what and how to teach); (2) "Teaching with Cases: Techniques" (concerned with the practice of case teaching ranging from the basics to the more advanced "tricks of the trade" practiced by experienced instructors; content could be covered in a case teaching workshop of three to five days in length); (3) "Curriculum Planning" (describes the types of cases available and provides guidelines for selecting appropriate cases to use for teaching); (4) "Case Writing" (approaches case writing as the subject might be handled in a case writing workshop designed to produce usable new cases). An appendix contains a teaching case, a teaching note, and a case analysis. References include a selected bibliography of case teaching and case learning guides and literature, case catalogs, and on-line resources. (From the Publisher)

Four additional cases and teaching suggestions are appended as is a list of 13 resource organizations. (From the Publisher)

Abstract: Case method teaching immerses students in realistic business situations--which include incomplete information, time constraints, and conflicting goals. The class discussion inherent in case teaching is well known for stimulating the development of students' critical thinking skills, yet instructors often need guidance on managing that class discussion to maximize learning. "Teaching with Cases" focuses on practical advice for instructors that can be easily implemented. It covers how to plan a course, how to teach it, and how to evaluate it. The book is organized by the three elements required for a great case-based course: 1) advance planning by the instructor, including implementation of a student contract; 2) how to make leading a vibrant case discussion easier and more systematic; and 3) planning for student evaluation after the course is complete. Teaching with Cases is ideal for anyone interested in case teaching, whether basing an entire course on cases, using cases as a supplement, or simply using discussion facilitation techniques.

Many undergraduates are culturally shaped to avoid making ethical judgments. They spontaneously adopt relativist and skeptical strategies such as “It all depends,” or “Whose morality?” or “Who's to say?” as ways of fending off the challenge of making moral decisions.

Additional Info:
Many undergraduates are culturally shaped to avoid making ethical judgments. They spontaneously adopt relativist and skeptical strategies such as “It all depends,” or “Whose morality?” or “Who's to say?” as ways of fending off the challenge of making moral decisions. The current tsunami that is washing away traditional sexual norms is both a result and a cause of this cultural shift. Case studies can mitigate this decline and help students to grow in both confidence and ability to make good ethical judgments. The case method, used with a Socratic pedagogy, engages imagination and counters the deficits in empathy found in many contemporary students. It moves students toward understanding morality itself. Against skepticism, it assists students in exercising practical reason, culminating in decision. Five cases invite students to overcome extreme relativism, to look for and evaluate relevant differences, and to enter into ethical discussion with other students on the sexual issues they face in their college years.
