The course "Principles of Pedagogy" is a compulsory public course in China's normal universities and serves as a fundamental course for teacher certification. The quality of training normal school students is directly impacted by the teaching effect of this course. However, due to the course's excessive concept and objective limitations such as teaching duration and class size, most universities still employ traditional teaching models, resulting in an unsatisfactory teaching effect. This article aims to clarify the research review of case-based teaching methods, summarize the current research situation of using case-based teaching methods in the course of pedagogy principles, and propose suggestions for using case-based teaching methods in current Chinese universities to carry out pedagogy principles courses. The goal is to provide a reference for relevant research and teaching.
