Business/Case studies

From Wikiversity
Jump to: navigation, search

This department is a Wikiversity content development project where participants create, organize and develop Business case studies.

The Case Method is used to enhance the learning of students. Case method is often utilized by recognized universities, such as Harvard Business School, to simulate real world learning experiences.

The "topic" namespace contains pages that are for management and organization of small academic units at Wikiversity such as departments (see: Wikiversity:Topics).

Learning projects[edit]

See: Learning Projects and the Wikiversity:Learning model.

Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the learning project (learning projects are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing! We suggest the use of the learning project template (use "subst:Learning project boilerplate" on the new page, inside the double curved brackets {{}}).

Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple departments. Cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.
