Using the Case Method to Compensate for Lack of Experience

We use the case method for teaching fresh engineers in inspection and quality. These "fresh" engineers just graduated from the colleges are recruited to position them as inspection engineers of mechanical-, electrical-, electromechanical- or electronics-based items for critical applications.
In our case methods we start with a situation in the field which has taken place to the root of the underlying theory. While in a traditional lecture session we would start with the theory and then end up in cases or examples to make the theory clear to the students.
Our engineers graduated from colleges, so they already have the foundation in theory. But what they lack is industry experience. That's why we aim to substitute the industry experience with actual cases we faced during practice in the field and connect each case with the corresponding theory. The trainees are finding this way of "teaching' more interactive, challenging and participative.
