This guide highlights the good practice we have identified, and also discusses our experiences (both good and bad) of the adoption and implementation of this type of learning activity.
These courses are not accredited and take students with a wider range of background skills, varied academic qualifications and different career aspirations.
Overall, we have found it easier to introduce case studies into our Type II courses and therefore these courses contain a greater proportion of this type of learning.
There are a number of definitions for the term case study.
For example, Fry et al (1999) describe case studies as complex examples which give an insight into the context of a problem as well as illustrating the main point.
