He advises that both the content and the way the case is written are important: the case "should not only address the issues you wish to explore but also capture a student’s interest in its first few lines. These provide a 'safe' learning environment to practice with peers, under the expert guidance of a recognised practitioner. Ultimately, practice and developing confidence are vital ingredients for the success of a case teacher.

Teaching cases provide information, but neither analysis nor conclusions. The analytical work of explaining the relationships among events in the case, identifying options, evaluating choices and predicting the effects of actions is the work done by students during the classroom discussion. What are Cases? Cases are narratives that contain information and invite analysis.

Teaching cases typically develop a focused narrative around a problem or an issue. The content of the case is based on actual events, and it is written to engage students in critical thinking and analysis. They are high on experiential knowledge and context. They place writers, teachers and students "in the moment" and encourage inductive reasoning. We think Clyde Herreid's recent book, Start with A Story, is one of the best introductions to the various ways cases can be taught (Herreid, 2006). Case teaching can be done using a lecture-oriented instructional approach but we think they are especially interesting when more active forms of learning are used.
