Case teaching and learning provides an excellent opportunity to engage students with experiential learning. While the case method is not a new pedagogy, its applications tend to be restricted to business, legal and medical education. At the same time, case studies focusing on Hong Kong are in short supply in the textbook market. While it is easier to motivate students to learn using local case studies, instructors may find it costly to create them from scratch.

This poster aims to report the observations from a Teaching Development Grant project conducted at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2018-19 – “Case Teaching and Learning for Social Science and Public Policy Education” (099H). It demonstrates: (1) how local case studies were developed; (2) how they were used for classroom teaching and outside-classroom learning; and (3) how students perceived the case learning experience.

We conclude that, while there is room for improvement in its implementation, the case pedagogy creates a largely positive impact on students for learning social science and public policy at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
