Film Clip: Using Case Studies in Social Sciences

Posted by on February 3rd, 2010 · Research, Resources, Showcasing Teaching

Christopher Walker from School of Social Sciences and International Studies discusses the way The Social Science and Policy Case Studies course uses structured case studies to teach policy theory and its application.

The course is structured around 3 consecutive case studies, each lasting 4 weeks and culminating in a role play where student groups present their analysis of the issues, including the group representing senior public officials response to the policy problem.
