Teaching Cases in Entrepreneurship: Giving Life and Meaning to Learning
Keywords:Casos de ensino, Empreendedorismo, Cenário de negócio
As Adjunct Editor for cases and technological reports, it is with great satisfaction that I have witnessed, in recent years, the considerable improvement in the quality of teaching cases submitted to REGEPE. Both the proportion of rejected cases and the number of recommendations for adjustments to the approved cases decreased considerably.
A teaching case can be defined as a broad spectrum of instructional methods, which revolve around reading and discussing a document about a business scenario, known as a “case”. In this sense, teaching cases are true stories, based on research and detailed studies, which provide real data to feed classroom discussions (Theroux & Clark, 2004).
