Researching up-to-date case studies

To keep course content cutting-edge in a fast-moving professional field, get students to research their own case studies.

Healthcare management, like many professional fields, changes very rapidly. This course addresses the problem of keeping content topical by getting students to research a case study which can then become a resource for future cohorts. This also encourages students to be actively involved in their learning. Students are given the task of finding information about the healthcare system in another country, guided by a framework of topic headings and key issues, with suggestions for websites and other resources to use. They thus also learn about healthcare systems other than their own. The presentation of their findings is assessed. [Peter Taylor]
