Case Teaching & Writing Workshops

Case Teaching Workshop

The Case Teaching Workshop is an excellent opportunity for novice and experienced faculty members to practice case teaching methods by exploring the concepts and techniques behind creative case teaching, showing you how to plan and execute successful case discussions, working with the unique dynamics of the case classroom, and meeting the multiple challenges of discussion leadership. 

Participants gain:  

  • A solid grasp of the teaching concepts behind the case method
  • Time-tested approaches to preparing and leading discussions
  • Multiple means of integrating case teaching into courses
  • Techniques for creating a more dynamic classroom environment
  • New contacts who share an interest in interactive teaching

Case Teaching Workshops are typically held during the summer on an annual basis at the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance which is located at the University of Washington's Seattle campus.   Case Writing Workshops are scheduled on a demand basis.

Case Writing Workshop

The Case Writing Workshop is designed for faculty who want in-depth guidance on developing an initial draft case into a finished case.  The workshop engages participants by providing a case writing toolkit that covers:  

  • Elements of a good case
  • Developing topics into cases
  • Ethical and practical dilemmas in writing cases
  • Developing a teaching note
  • Personalized feedback on case development       

Customized Workshops

In addition, the Electronic Hallway offers customized case workshops. The design and scheduling of custom courses is dependent on faculty availability and a contract reflecting the cost of customization. To learn more call 206.221.3676 or contact hallhelp@uw.edu
