Case Studies


For critical reflection & developing analysis, synthesis and decision making skills

  1. Form student groups and distribute identical or different case studies.
  2. Use research in your field or current events as stimulus ideas for your case study.
  3. Allow time for students to ask questions about the process they are to use to clarify the problem presented in the case.
  4. Students work in their groups (anywhere from 1 class to several depending on the complexity of the assignment) to study the case in depth.
  5. Groups apply course concepts to sort data, apply analytic tools, articulate issues, reflect on experience, draw conclusions and recommend actions that resolve the problem in the case.
  6. Students discuss cases during the all class debrief.
