Welcome to the world’s leader in Case Method training. The three leading case method texts on writing, learning and teaching originated at the Ivey Business School. Over 15,000 participants in more than 60 countries have benefited from and enjoyed the practical focus on learning to use the case method quickly and effectively.
Ivey Business School is Canada’s leader in management education, and the second largest producer and distributor of cases in the world. Ivey has been the home of the Annual Case Writing and Case Learning and Teaching Workshops for over 40 years. These workshops are integrated, hands-on and intensely practical.
About the workshops
The Case Method is a powerful teaching approach that combines academic theory with practical application. Cases focus on business issues that managers face every day – not fictitious scenarios, but actual real-world problems requiring thorough analysis and planning. Ivey’s commitment to real-world learning helps to develop extraordinary leaders that have extraordinary careers. Our Case Workshops immerse participants in the Case Method through a combination of participation, case analysis and interactive exercises.
The workshop focuses on the process of teaching and writing cases. During the case teaching section participants will learn:
- how to create a case teaching plan;
- different approaches for managing class discussion;
- how to adapt their case teaching approach to different audiences; and,
- opportunities to use cases for exams and reports.
The case writing section includes the following topics:
- framing the case and creating an outline;
- challenges, remedies and trade-offs when writing cases;
- how to create an effective teaching note; and,
- how to effectively manage the data collection and field research process.
Not only will participants learn from the Ivey faculty member facilitating the workshop, but they will also learn from other participants with regards to sharing of classroom best-practices as well as their case teaching & writing experiences.
Participants in these workshops come from academic, business and the Government. Representatives from the academic community include research assistants, doctoral candidates, case writers, case center directors, instructors, lecturers, and professors in all management-related disciplines, as well as field experts in accounting, health care, information system, logistics and a host of other special interests.
