Chapter 12: Learning fictions or facts? Moving from case studies to the impact-based method
A growing number of innovations in entrepreneurship education enable teaching without using the case-study method. We argue that some of these innovations not only address recurrent criticism made against business schools but also form a new pedagogical model. We propose to describe this model as the impact-based method. It refers to the ways in which learning is developed by taking steps to change practices and habits existing outside the academic arena. In this chapter, we describe how this approach transforms the traditional business school: the students from heteronomous become autonomous, the knowledge from abstract becomes grounded, the culture from homogeneous becomes heterogeneous and the institution from global becomes local. Implications for the organizational model of the business schools are discussed.
