Chapter Author - James Chandler and Ian Marcousé

Chapter Number & Title – chapter 8 The case study as a signature pedagogy

In medicine and law there are unique yet widely accepted methods of teaching the respective students, medical rounds and mock trials. These teaching methods bring students close to the reality of their discipline and thus thrust them into the rigorous demands of the subject. This same approach can be, and has been, applied to the study of business. This chapter will guide you through the unique approach of using case studies to teach business at secondary level to maximise the reality and rigour of the subject. This chapter will also explore the significance of using business case studies with your pupils, and it will enable you to create new and tailor existing business case studies that challenge all your pupils and improve your teaching using case studies.
