It also provides large number of solutions to a single problem. It provides the students with  a wider opportunity to analyze and address the real world problems.

The Team CLT also made demonstration on various activities wherever necessary involving the participants of the workshop to make the session live and interactive.

Each and every faculty was provided with videos that consisted of various cases and they were asked to provide solution. The faculty members solved and came up with various solutions inside which they included various activities.

Importance of case based approach

It provides a greater opportunity to teach the content to the students using which students will put themselves under the scenario and provide a better solution to the case.

It develops analytic, communicative and collaborative skills along with content knowledge. In their effort to find solutions and reach decisions through discussion, students sort out factual data, apply analytic tools, articulate issues, reflect on their relevant experiences, and draw conclusions they can relate to new situations. In the process, they acquire substantive knowledge and develop analytic, collaborative, and communication skills.

Through case based methodology the thinking skills of the students is triggered, by making them to see the theory in practice. It helps them to bring out the multi dimensional thinking ability. The students will understand the necessity of ample solution for a single case, thereby this method keeps the student highly attentive, engaged and indulged in the class.
