Case study courses, the foundation of Harvard Business School for years, are effective for many reasons. Experiential learning almost always provides a meaningful experience, and short of real life experience, they are most effective. They provide a simulation that immerses the learner in the environment, considering alternatives and thinking critically about a situation they connect with. “Instead of building big interactive elearning courses to address the issue they created a series of case studies that were meaningful and real. Sometimes you don’t have time to build a big course.”
