Real-Time Case Method: Analysis of a Second Implementation
Theroux, James M.
Journal of Education for Business, v84 n6 p367-373 Jul-Aug 2009
In 2005, M. Hopkins and J. Theroux implemented the second example of an experimental case study, at 11 business schools in the United States and Canada. The new type of case study, named the "real-time case (RTC) study," uses the Internet to bring business reality to business courses and to facilitate communication among faculty, students, and the case company. In the present study, data from student surveys provided an assessment of RTC. The author's analysis suggests that the RTC concept engages and satisfies students at a higher level than do average courses and presents a more realistic and integrated view of business decision making. However, the level of satisfaction declined in comparison with the first iteration of RTC in 2001 (S. House & J. Theroux). In the present study, the author presents student feedback to explain the difference. (Contains 12 figures and 2 notes.)
