Rapidly changing policy environment such as the Fourth Industrial Revolution is the hot topic of discussion in recent years. Great disruptions brought by technological changes are also transforming nature of jobs available in the future. The kinds of demands on educational institutions will be different than ones in the past, and students will be increasingly required to think flexibly and work cooperatively with others.

   Accordingly, paradigm for education pedagogy has also changed in recent years to meet these demands. Traditionally, education was largely based on one-way transfer of knowledge from teachers to students in lectures. This method of teaching had been useful in equipping students with known set of skills, but scholars are now increasingly aware that traditional style of teaching is not suited for developing creative and innovative thinking skills. Now, the pedagogy is shifting towards the project-based learning, or PBL. Project-based learning is a type of learning strategy where students take charge in solving real world problems and assignments through cooperative group activities. It can promote self-directed learning, as students are assigned to solve real problems and assignments cooperatively, their creative capacities and communication based cooperative abilities are expected to grow.

   From the perspective of policy makers, the onset of the Fourth Industrial Revolution changed the policy demands, and now, policy development involves more multi-dimensional and innovative thinking capabilities than ever before to solve increasingly more complex challenges. As such, it will be key to equip policy makers with the right set of skills in planning, implementing and evaluating policies. This means current government officials and students of policy making can very much benefit from the project-based learning approach in their future endeavors in the field of public policy.

   Out of these concerns, Center for International Development (CID), KDI and KDI School of Public Policy and Management designed case studies to meet these increasingly important demands. As a form of project-based learning, KDI’s case studies can be wonderful sources of projects, eliciting in-depth class discussions and cooperative learning. KDI’s case studies are designed around real-world policy challenges to examine decision-making processes, to discuss conflicts and resolutions, and to simulate and apply acquired knowledge. Through the case studies, students and government officials can gain insights into the processes involved in solving complex challenges.

   The case study project covers wide-range of topics. In 2017, it covered eight topics ranging from issues in the deliberation process of minimum wage to the communication problems in crisis management. A number of experts in respective areas contributed to the case project, and the list is expected to grow each year.

  The case studies are completely free of charge, and students, scholars, policy makers, or anyone interested in the development experience of Korea can access the material through our case study web page. Here, users can search, browse, read, and download case studies. In addition, institutional users such as professors and instructors can access teaching resources and materials if provided.
