"Flipped Assessment": Benefits of Student Written Case Studies and Peer Evaluation

Room 6.30, Level 6, 111 Barry Street


The format of this presentation will include a brief history of the case study method, and the more recent literature (conceptual and empirical) to consider how the case study method has been modified to improve student experience and learning outcomes. We propose active audience participation in our seminar allowing for exploration of attendees’ own experiences of using the case study approach in their teaching.

In addition to the open discussion, we also provide an overview of an  innovation and experimental modification to the case study approach in a postgraduate subject  where students are actively involved in the design and delivery of a case study. In effect, we aim to create an ecosystem of effective teamwork and learning strategies through an assessment with high task relevance, supported by expert feedback and peer feedback. Preliminary data will be presented to support these discussions.
