LU Case Day 2019 - Active Learning and Gamification


Welcome to the 6th LU Case Day. We invite engaged teachers, researchers, and students who all generously share experiences and reflections connected to the case pedagogy. Anyone at Lund University with an interest or curiosity into case teaching and active learning can participate free of charge, including start‐up and wrapup lunches. Interested guests from other universities are welcome too, provided there are available seats.

The theme of the 2019 conference is Active Learning and Gamification.

The conference includes invited speakers, presentations from the participants, and interactive exercises. The goal of the conference is to inspire and share ideas how elements of active learning and gamification can be used in your own case‐based teaching. Maybe we together can come to a better understanding what active learning and gamification is/or is not.

Call for Abstracts

For those of you interested in presenting at the conference, we need a short outline (half page) of your presentation, no later than 11 March. Presentation topics could e.g. relate to:

  • Opportunities and challenges with introducing game elements in case‐based teaching
  • The physical space as an enabler for active learning
  • The importance of intrinsic motivation for engaging students’ learning
  • The changing role of the teacher in active‐learning environments
  • Gamification as part of a blended‐learning approach
  • Teambuilding, group dynamics, and conflict prevention
  • As usual, it is possible to present other ideas on case method and active learning

LUCA – Lund University Case Academy was formed as a network across faculties in February 2012 to promote case‐based student active learning. It was started by a group of teachers from the Faculty of Engineering LTH, School of Economics and Management (LUSEM) and the Faculty of Medicine, who share an interest in case‐based methods. These include the Harvard case method, today used at LUSEM and the Faculty of Medicine, project‐based learning, used in LTH, and problem‐based learning used in the Faculty of Medicine. LUCA is interested in widening the participation in the network to more teachers and faculties at Lund University. LUCA organizes since 2014 a local conference each year, LU Case Day, to share experiences and contribute to development of teaching and learning practices.
