Reviews
The pre-work gets the subject matter in your head meaning less time needs to be spent on the nitty gritty [and allows more time to focus] on the practical application in a case study.
Zach, 2019
The example case study [we worked through] during the session allowed application of topics and learnings. Take away learning resources will be very useful.
Corey, 2019
Most valuable aspect for me was linking the theory to the practical perspective.
