The HEC Montréal Case Centre is now offering free and unlimited access to the case teaching expertise of HEC Montréal professors, with the launch of close to 80 YouTube video clips (in French only). The short clips are listed under 14 headings, ranging from the overall philosophy behind the method to practical tips, and are intended for both novice and experienced French-language teachers interested in using the case teaching approach.
“HEC Montréal has focused on the case method in its teaching for over 40 years,” says Anne Mesny, the Case Centre’s Director. “Making these clips and this expertise widely available to the French-speaking world will strengthen this tradition.”
More than ten of the School’s professors, in the fields of management, human resources management, finance, information technology and operations and logistics management, all of them widely experienced in case teaching, participated in the project. The YouTube clips have been online for just a few weeks, but they have already been watched 1,877 times.
Following on the heels of the launch last October of EDUlib, a platform offering online university courses for the public, this is clearly another important service offered by the School to the community.
About the Case Centre
The HEC Montréal Case Centre was officially opened in 1999. Its mission is to promote the case method as a teaching and management tool, particularly in the French-speaking world. In addition to publishing the International Journal of Case Studies in Management (IJCSM) since 2003, the Centre has a catalogue of over 2,000 cases and teaching notes, most of them in French.
