The workshop aims to enhance a public sector organisation’s knowledge and technical capacity by developing its own pool of trained case writers. It does this by helping the participants of the workshop:

  • Understand the principles of case writing;
  • Gain insights on participant-centred learning, and how case teaching is done;
  • Select and develop their case study topics; and
  • Document recent policy decisions in a way suitable for teaching and engaging future generations of public officers

This programme is designed to develop skills in policy focused public organisations and training institutions by developing its own pool of trained case writers. It is also suited for policy analysts, strategists, researchers who are at the forefront of research work in public and non-profit institutions.

S$1,800 + 7% GST (for group registrations of 3 and above)

In discussing case-writing, the course addresses issues such as how to decide on a case theme and learning objectives, what material should be included and left out (or relegated to appendices), and how to build participant engagement into the way a case is written. Later workshop sessions will include topics such as how to write multi-player simulation exercises that have students play roles of participants in the policy situation.

Beginning on the first day of multi-day case writing workshops, participants will spend some time working on cases of their own choosing, and it is expected that many of the participants will come to the workshop with very rough drafts of potential cases. By the middle of the second day, the emphasis shifts more to the cases that they are working on preparing themselves. On the final day, participants will have an opportunity to present preliminary versions of their cases and get feedback from the entire group.
