As a course with utility and practicality, the teaching content of ecological landscape design course not only includes the learning of basic theoretical knowledge, but also covers the cultivation of design practical ability. How to effectively make up for students’ deficiency of ecological landscape design practice and theory learning, improve students’ analysis and judgment ability and cultivate students’ communication ability and team spirit is an important problem in ecological landscape design course, which must be solved. In this study, it describes the concept and history of the case method and introduces its advantages with characteristics. On this basis, it makes a comprehensive discussion of the organization and implementation of case method in ecological landscape design course, including case selection, the basic mode of case method, the processing and analysis of case, the evaluation of students’ performance and so on; Furthermore, it also discusses the relationship and application between the case method and other teaching methods in ecological landscape design course.
