For teachers: Case-Based Teaching

Unite! Teaching and Learning offers 14 pedagogical trainings taking place online in the spring 2022 for Aalto University teachers including PhDs and post-docs with teaching responsibility. This module is designed to help teachers in using the case method for any type of course, no matter if your discipline is about STEM, Social Sciences, Humanities or Arts. The module deals with the benefits of teaching with cases and the fundamentals about how to do it effectively.
Both the students and Finnair's employees got to learn about the customer experience, creation of digital value, agile project working methods, and working in multidisciplinary and multinational teams. Visiting Assistant Professor Miikka J. Lehtonen in the middle.

Teaching and Learning is a series of training activities aimed at teaching staff, lecturers and faculty in all Unite! partner institutions, who are interested in sharing and developing teaching and learning practices. We invite you to meet Unite! colleagues while learning how teaching and learning is promoted at different partner universities.
