Ivey Publishing – Leaders in Case Method Training

  • Case Workshops

Our Case Method Workshops feature hands-on, interactive and immersive learning experiences. They offer a range of learning opportunities, for those who are new to the case method and for those looking to enhance their skills.

Over 15,000 participants spanning more than 60 countries have benefited from our practical focus on learning to use the case method effectively through our case writing and case teaching workshops. Our online workshops are facilitated by Ivey Business School faculty members, who teach utilizing the case method daily and have authored multiple cases of their own.

“I have been teaching cases for years, and it was informative and interesting to learn the elements of the case so that I can more effectively teach a case. It was very helpful to get ideas on questions for students and how to manage the classroom.”

 Madeleine Romero, Linfield University

Types of Workshops We Offer

Case Teaching

This workshop is an introduction to the case method and how to use cases as an effective tool for teaching and learning.

Learning Objectives

  • Develop an understanding of the case method and why it has become an effective tool for teaching and learning.
  • Determine the importance of the three-step learning process for your students.
  • Learn how to develop a case-based teaching plan.
  • Examine the use of cases as a tool for assessment.

“After years of struggling with case teaching, I feel like I have a handle on what has not worked for me in the past and how to improve my case method application in the future.”

James Hilliard, Temple University


Case Writing

This workshop aids participants in writing cases effectively and efficiently. Attendees work through the three-phase writing process on a case lead that participants have developed or are hoping to develop. Those who have a case ready for submission or one in development will have an opportunity to receive one on one feedback from an Ivey Publishing editorial staff member.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand a systematic approach to case writing.
  • Determine the key decisions around timing and learning objectives to write a successful case.
  • Identify what is needed to construct a case and teaching note.
  • Help craft a case that is progressing well toward publication.


Teaching Cases with Technology

This workshop is designed for experienced case teachers to help them transition effectively from in class to online teaching and redesign their case-based course for online learning.

Learning Objectives

  • Develop an understanding for online learning from the perspective of the student.
  • Differentiate between adapted for online learning and design for online learning.
  • Develop a model for teaching online that combines asynchronous and synchronous learning for the individual, small groups and large groups.
  • Establish a process to redesign your course for an entirely online experience.


“Great value for money (and time)! The program was well planned and supported. The learning objectives were clearly defined and communicated. David Wood delivered a highly engaging and informative series of lectures, exercises and discussions (both in small breakout groups and 'in-the-round' sessions). His confidence in using an online teaching platform to deliver the workshop served as a great example of how asynchronous communication/instruction can/should be incorporated into the overall learning experience. The workshop exceeded my expectations on all fronts!”

Blake Hanna, University of British Columbia
