Interactive Learning: The Casewriting Method as an Entire Semester Course for Higher Education. Teacher's Manual.
Bowen, Brent D.; Lutte, Rebecca K.
This guide explains the reasons for employing the case method as a tool in the academic discipline of aviation. It promotes the use of case writing as a unique opportunity to derive even further benefits from case analysis. The benefits to students of using case writing as a learning strategy include a focus on the strategy of a real situation; development of an ownership interest; and development of reasoning, decision making, judgment, group dynamics, formal written and oral communication ability, and organizational skills. This is a teacher's guide that includes the course syllabus, schedule and practical tips on introducing the concept of case study, assigning groups, selecting a topic, and assigning roles. Other topics covered are case writing guidelines, case components, timeline for case writing of individual and group projects, case development, case presentations, case evaluations, peer evaluations, group self evaluations, examples of case writing, and a breakdown of those sample cases.
