The research incorporates a knowledge sharing approach, in an undergraduate classroom, using discussion cases to investigate the role of knowledge sharing on students working in groups to find solutions for the cases. The goal is to provide empirical evidence as well as additional information on knowledge sharing among students in group settings using discussion cases. A survey was adopted to investigate the relationships between the environmental factors, motivational factors, students' individual characteristics, the lecturer's role, the industry representative's role and knowledge sharing - outside and inside of the class - on students' learning experiences and outcomes. The framework was modified from existing frameworks and current literature's lessons learned on knowledge sharing approaches in educational contexts. The results showed that environmental factors positively influenced the students' knowledge sharing motivation. In addition, the industry representatives (case protagonists) active involvement in the classroom had a significant impact on the students' knowledge sharing behaviour. This finding contributes to future directions on developing strategies to improve knowledge sharing in higher education classrooms through enhancing classroom environment as well as involving industry representatives when designing the classroom experience.
