Making the directive more non-directive by presenting case studies

i.e. Harvard Business School

“Cases expose students to real business dilemmas and decisions,” NiCn Nohria, the former dean of Harvard Business School, writes for Harvard Business Review. “Cases teach students to size up business problems quickly while considering the broader organizational, industry, and societal context. Students recall concepts better when they are set in a case, much as people remember words beIer when used in context.

Cases teach students how to apply theory in practice and how to induce theory from practice. The case method cultivates the capacity for critical analysis, judgment, decision- making, and acCon.”
