Andrew Towl recalls learning by the case method in the 30's
I thought it was wonderful because there were cases, and you'd argue with the other students in the classes, and with the professors. And they were dealing with real things. And there wasn't really one answer. And you had to defend yourself in class, and there would be two, or three, or four ideas coming up in the class, and you'd get a group around that. So it seemed to me to be getting to some of the realities of life.
