Traditional teaching methods have limitations in expecting learners to be passive recipients, and do not take individual differences of either instructor or learner into account. Active teaching methods, such as case-method teaching (CMT) require learners to be more active and dynamic, engaging with real-world case studies, analyzing and problem-solving. The CMT method offers flexibility matching learning and teaching styles of participants. This method has advantages working with potential challenges and opportunities for organizations, empowering staff and bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and reality.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
