Earlier this month (11 May) we hosted our second Inspiration Day at Friends House in London (pictured, above) for faculty working with undergraduates. It was a glorious day in London and we were delighted to welcome delegates from France, Germany, Ireland, Lithuania and Spain as well as the UK.
Scott himself introduced a range of approaches to prepare for a class discussion.
It was a wonderful day for three reasons.
The first was experiencing the interaction between presenters and delegates as they swapped and shared knowledge.
The second was the growing realisation that no-one was questioning the reality that cases can, should and are being taught to undergraduates with great effect.
There was no question about that. The discussion has changed from ‘Can we teach cases to undergraduates?’ to ‘How do we teach cases to undergraduates?’ That seems to me to be a step change of enormous significance, and one that we intend supporting in greater depth as the message spreads.
The third was that The Case Centre is engaging with a group of colleagues who are extending the reach of cases into undergraduate schools, and that we are providing them with resources in order to make their lives easier. These include the free resources available on our website, campus visits and the support we offer SIGs, to our new Undergraduate Case Teaching Licence, a collection of over 30,000 cases available under an affordable site licence.
