Welcome to the world’s leader in Case Method training. The three leading case method textbooks on writing, learning, and teaching were originated at the Ivey Business School. For decades, Ivey has utilized case-based learning and has become a global leader in not only case publishing, but promoting the method. By 2020, more than 15,000 participants across over 60 countries have benefited from highly practical and applied case teaching and writing workshops.
Ivey Business School is Canada’s leader in management education, the second-largest producer and distributor of cases, and the largest producer of Asian cases in the world. Ivey has been the home of the case teaching and writing workshops for over 40 years. These workshops develop the necessary skills for bringing the highly effective case method to college and university courses, regardless if it for face-to-face or online teaching. The case method is also widely used by leading businesses from all industries for talent and executive development. Ivey’s Case Workshops are highly immersive, allowing participants to develop hands-on competencies through a combination of instructional sessions, immersion, and interactive exercises with feedback.
The case method is one of the most powerful teaching approaches, combining academic theory and framework with practical application and critical thinking while keeping the learner highly engaged. Ivey cases focus on management issues that executives face every day. Ivey cases are not fictitious scenarios. They focus on actual real-world decisions, requiring thorough analysis and decision making that helps to develop extraordinary leaders and careers. Our case workshops immerse participants in the case method through a combination of short instructional presentations, interactive case analysis, and hands-on exercises. Ivey has also merged as the leader in online case teaching with half of its 2020 case classes delivered virtually.
In this workshop, you will learn not only from the Ivey faculty member leading the workshop, on the topics of classroom best-practice but, just like in a case-based classroom, also from one another. In particular, we will discuss the following topics on how to best conduct a case-based class:
