Abstract

Over the past years, one of the most commonly used student-centered approaches to teaching has been Case-Based Learning (CBL). In particular, CBL is used in engineering, sciences, social sciences, and professional education. This type of learning ensures active participation and leads to innovative solutions to problems. This study investigates the implementation of CBL in the multidisciplinary, undergraduate Management of Innovation and Technology Course (MGT-372) at the University of Nicosia. For the purpose of the study, the data were elicited through student questionnaires, as well as the lecturer's journal observation notes on CBL. The results indicate that CBL can be an effective learning method helping students to develop their analytical, critical thinking and collaboration skills, which help them understand how to manage technology and innovation within an organizational context.
