In this context, a case study is the use of the case method--a teaching approach that uses decision-forcing cases to put students in the role of people who were faced with difficult decisions at some time in the past. Cases studies typically provide a reference framework for the decision to be made and supporting information that would permit the user to examine alternative manners in which the problem is addressed and to develop a defensible argument for their proposed solution to the quandary presented.
