Pedagogical Synergies between Austrian Economics and the Case Method
Evans, Anthony J., Journal of Private Enterprise
There is a tendency for academics to focus too much on instructor-centered learning and not enough on participant-centered learning. This paper argues that the "case method" is a pedagogical method that should be of interest to Austrian school economists. Not only can it provide students with a richer learning experience, but there are important methodological points of tangency. I also provide examples of cases that can be used to teach Austrian theory and provide honest reflections on my own efforts to implement the case method in my teaching.
