Abstract: Many studies that have investigated the differences between teacher-centered and student-centered learning activities (E. O'Shea, 2003; B. Clarke & C. James, 1997; J. L. Kincheloe, 2004), approaches to learning (J. B. Biggs, 1988; F. Marton & R. Saljo, 1976), and student satisfaction (C. Rowan, C. McCourt, & S. Beake, 2007; C. McCourt & B. G. Thomas, 2001) have been completed. This study will review the perspectives of one cohort of students on case-based learning as an innovative approach to teaching midwifery. First, the rationale for the chosen learning strategy will be discussed. Then, this article will explain and report on the research study. The findings will be discussed exploring the student's perspectives of learning through case-based learning. Finally, recommendations for future practice will be made in light of the research findings.
