Making the Case: An Introduction to Case-Based Learning

Although the use of case studies as a teaching technique has long been used in business, law, and medicine, it has been more rarely used in undergraduate science courses. However, there are many aspects of case studies as a teaching tool that are extremely relevant to the teaching of scientific principles and complex ideas. One definition of case studies is:’condensed versions of thought-provoking events from the lives of practicing professionals’. In this workshop, you will learn exactly what case studies are, how they can be effectively used in science classrooms, and some resources to get you started down the path of integrating them into your classroom.
