Economic literacy is important for everyone. Some research shows that important concepts in economics are often misunderstood both by laymen and students. It is a task and challenge for the lecturers to always innovate in the teaching and learning process. This study aims to adapt and test the effectiveness of case-based collaborative learning approaches. The hypothesis tested is that students who have the opportunity to discuss the case at the beginning of the lecture will have a deeper understanding of the economic concepts being studied. A quasi-experiment method is used to compare between classes that have case-based learning methods (as an experimental group) and classes that use methods that give more portions to lectures as (as a control group). The study is limited to one key concept that is learned by students at an early level, namely the concept of "externality". There is evidence that group discussion of a complex case is a method that has great potential use. Based on these findings, the practical advice that can be given to teachers is to reveal interesting cases for discussion.
