This study defines case method from a practical application perspective, in a specific aviation curriculum environment. A detailed discussion of the application of the case method in four courses in the Aviation Management department of the College of Applied Sciences and Arts at Southern Illinois University Carbondale is provided. This discussion describes the evolution of the process first applied in the spring semester of 1996. A survey of student perceptions of the case method was conducted over a four-year period. The survey instrument, methodology, population, questions, and responses is discussed. Preliminary evaluation of the data indicates that student respondents "agree" far more often than "do not agree" that the case method is an enhancement to their studies in aviation management. An evaluation of these perceptions forms the basis from which recommendations for further research is suggested.
