The Amsterdam Living Case Lab (ALCL)


The (ALCL), an initiative of the EB Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC), has the mission to:

  • help educators with implementing case-based learning in their classrooms;
  • create a case-community by bringing educators and organisations together in the case method and case materials.

With our activities, we contribute to a shared mission to:

  • further raise the quality of our education materials;
  • effectively obtain learning outcomes through unique student experiences;
  • connect our research and teaching to the world around us.

The case method

Working with the case-based learning method is a fantastic way to connect with bright minds. Students are tasked with solving relevant and current challenges. By applying their theoretical and practical knowledge to find new opportunities and solutions, students are engaged and better prepared for the next steps in their careers. Companies participating in this exciting method access new and innovative ways to experiment with new strategies or solve a critical company challenge.

Working with a course

Our step-by-step plan outlines the way in which organisations and faculty can bring a (live) case to a course. The Amsterdam Living Case Lab will help you connect with a course so student scan start solving your company’s challenge.

  1. Intake appointment with ALCL;
  2. Match with a course and discuss your organisation’s challenge;
  3. Introduce your organization and challenge during a lecture;
  4. Students pitch their solutions to you at the end of a session or course;
  5. Join the greater UvA Economics and Business community.
