How do teachers anticipate CASE teaching
will develop their own classroom practice for the better?
The combination of ERP simulation and case teaching can be applied to the business processes management course at the high abstract level.
ERP software is vital to facilitate effective pedagogical methodologies in ERP education such as hands-on experience, case teaching, technical implementation, and simulation.
While case teaching can be adversely affected by a great number of students in a class, it can also be affected by too few students.
However, as noted earlier, not every instructor possess or is willing to learn these key attributes, which, in turn, may lead to poor case teaching.
As basic financial courses are generally taught during the first two years of college, they regard the appropriate time for implementing case teaching
to be the last two years of study when they have completed these basic courses.
Business cases are often used as part of the case teaching
method, an experiential learning approach that is popular with some business schools, and one made well known by Harvard Business School.
When Sykes and Bird (1992) surveyed a variety of cases, descriptions of case teaching and arguments about cases in teacher education, five categories emerged that speak to the diversity of theory and practice surrounding the case idea:
First, he finds case teaching "deceptively difficult" and that it is "not easy mastery but steady improvement" in learning how to properly use case methodology.
More than 216 business educators, including 37 deans and associate deans from Greater China's top 20 business schools, have already completed the program, in which HBS faculty members provide formal and intensive instruction in the participant-centered learning model, case teaching
, case writing and course development.
Merseth (1990) who has been studying and writing about case-based teaching since 1978, found case teaching use as far back in educational administration as 1924, but attributes this lag in the general field of education to the lack of well developed case materials, and the lack of a mechanism to make cases available to a wider audience of educators.
As a faculty member of the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) College of Education, I integrate case teaching with lectures in all my classes.
