Craig, John (2007) Case Based Learning in Politics: Problem Based Case Studies for Enhancing Work Related Learning in Politics. Project Report. The Higher Education Academy, York, UK. (Unpublished)

This project goes beyond the traditional approach to work-related learning in Politics to mainstream work-related learning within the core politics curriculum. This will enhance the benefits of work-related learning to students by integrating this learning into their overall progression and improving their employability as graduates.

To achieve this we will develop innovatory case-based learning approaches to teaching and learning which have a proven track record in other disciplines, such as medicine and nursing, but have been little used in politics and cognate disciplines. Case-based learning refers to a problem-based approach to learning which draws on real-life case-studies and simulations of workplace situations. It is therefore a form of work-related learning. It involves students in active group learning and it is widely acknowledged to encourage deep learning by students
