Abstract

The purpose of this article is to provide a reflective discussion, using literature review, on the use of case study as a teaching and learning strategy to improve academic learner performance in Economics. Guided by the social constructivism paradigm, we attempt to provide an exposѐ on the need for the use of case study as a teaching and learning strategy; the concept of case studies; conditions for the successful implementation of the case study as a teaching and learning strategy; barriers to using case study as a teaching and learning strategy and how to overcome them; as well as evidence suggesting that the strategy may improve academic learner performance in Economics.
