Validating a Generic Measurement to Assess Case-based Learning among Halliwick Foundation Course Students
A concern of many educators and managers is students’ inability to transfer concepts and procedures learned in school to the work environment. Case-based Learning (CBL) is a pedagogy that offers experiences which engage students in authentic problem solving thus helps to improve students’ ability to transfer knowledge, concepts, and skills learned in schools to real-life contexts. Case studies are written summaries of real-life cases that require students to identify appropriate strategies for the resolution of the 'case'. Due to the scant work done thus far to assess CBL, this study was aimed at designing and validating a generic scale to assess perceptions of certificate program students (Halliwick foundation course) regarding the various lifelong learning skills linked to CBL effective implementation.
