One of the questions that professors are often curious about is, how does Real Time Cases’ content work with different undergraduate and graduate course levels?
The purpose of this post is to answer this exact question. The short version is that Bloom’s taxonomy is fully incorporated into our case materials, making it easy for professors to identify the appropriate level for the video case activity, and to deliver a great educational experience for their students. The longer version is detailed below.
The objectives of the video-based cases are all written with Bloom’s Taxonomy in mind, along with the questions and assignments included with each case. Real Time Cases are categorized by a suggested level, based on the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy and the level of rigor the challenge entails:
- For the Undergraduate Lower Level (UGL), the cases cover: Remember, Understand, Apply.
- For the Undergraduate Upper Level (UGU), the cases cover: Apply, Analyze, Evaluate.
- For the Graduate Level (GR), the cases cover: Analyze, Evaluate, Create.
A closer look at the cases
Real Time Cases address a wide variety of authentic, timely Business challenges that are categorized according to Suggested Level. Many of our 40+ Partner Companies offer multiple cases and we typically offer a progression of difficult within each company. Some companies may even offer one case for each of the three suggested suggested levels. In these instances, instructors have the opportunity to let students follow one company throughout an entire program.
Likewise, our video-based case studies span a wide variety of relevant Disciplines and Topics, ranging from Management, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship, to Finance and Operations.
What it means for professors
Whether you are looking for standardized packages or flexibility in teaching material, Real Time Cases can fit those needs. The cases come in curated packages based on different undergraduate and graduate levels; they also provide suggestions to professors regarding theories, applications, major considerations, discussions and assignments.
In terms of personalization, each case includes comprehensive Teaching Notes, in which our Learning Solutions team provides tips on how to adapt elements to different learning objectives and suggested methodologies to meet varying student needs as well as course connections that introduce complementary concepts.
Our cases can be used in a variety of ways, whether that means following the Four-Week Sample Plan for a class project, or extending the case learning experience across 16 weeks for a capstone project; it’s all about the needs of the professor and student.
