In this paper we share experiences obtained from employing a new approach to teaching case studies in on-ground sections of the MBA core course in operations management at a regional university located in the South Central region. Our new approach to teaching cases is of the blended learning variety as an online discussion moderated by the instructor is now conducted prior to the case discussion in the physical classroom. We have found that this new approach aids students with little or no prior exposure to the case method of learning.
