A teaching Case is an extended case study built on a specific scenario that requires a deep level of analysis. Our teaching cases provide an opportuniuty for students to study, examine and reflect on real life cases of mental well-being issues experienced by entrepreneurs. Each Teaching Case is an industry-based scenario that may be used to enrich and make a learning activity more dynamic. Learners could also be divided into smaller groups to provide an environment to tackle more complex and in-depth issues. This also provides a possibility to work on longer cases that may take several days for learners to work on. They will include a synopsis, including an introduction and background of the case to be considered, as well as guidance for both learners and the instructor or group leader. There are also suggested teaching plans, learning outcomes and key questions based on the accompanying toolkits. Each of the teaching cases has been developed to provide students or entrepreneurs with learning experiences based on real life scenarios. Each teaching case draws on the learning from the Toolkits.
