Print Version Case studies are stories that are used as a teaching tool to show the application of a theory or concept to real situations. Dependent on the goal they are meant to fulfill, cases can be fact-driven and deductive where there is a correct answer, or they can be context driven where multiple solutions are possible.
Various disciplines have employed case studies, including humanities, social sciences, sciences, engineering, law, business, and medicine. Good cases generally have the following features: Instructors can create their own cases or can find cases that already exist.
The following are some things to keep in mind when creating a case: What do you want students to learn from the discussion of the case?
What do they already know that applies to the case? What are the issues that may be raised in discussion?
How will the case and discussion be introduced? What preparation is expected of students? Do they need to read the case ahead of time? What directions do you need to provide students regarding what they are supposed to do and accomplish?
Do you need to divide students into groups or will they discuss as the whole class? Are you going to use role-playing or facilitators or record keepers? What are the opening questions? How much time is needed for students to discuss the case? How will you evaluate students? A POD workshop session in Fall provides one example of the use of case studies, together with three case studies developed especially for that workshop.
To find other cases that already exist, try the following websites: SUNY-Buffalo maintains this set of links to other case studies on the web in disciplines ranging from engineering and ethics to sociology and business.“We’re playing telephone tag,” Mark murmured.
