Taneja, Aakash
Journal of Information Systems Education, v25 n3 p181-187 Fall 2014
Computing professionals work in groups and collaborate with individuals having diverse backgrounds and behaviors. The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) characterizes that a computing program must enable students to attain the ability to analyze a problem, design and evaluate a solution, and work effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal. It is important for instructors to enable students to experience team work and collaboration while preparing them for their professional careers. Case-study analysis is an important method for engaging students in active collaborative learning. Forming groups and using case-study analysis is an effective way to integrate theoretical knowledge and real-world professional practices into the curriculum. This paper describes an innovative pedagogical and practical approach for integrating group case-study learning in a course. Our findings suggest that students were effectively able to share diverse perspectives and apply conceptual material to real-world situations in case-study learning activities.
