The links below address teaching concerns such as implementation strategies for the classroom, case resources, and related literature. We hope to add to this list.

 Teacher Resources

National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science    University at Buffalo

“Here we have listed articles, books, and bibliographies to the case study literature to give you a sample of recent attempts to introduce the case method into the science classroom and a glimpse of its potential as seen through the eyes of some of its most ardent advocates.”

Resources for Problem-Based Learning  

Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education   University of Delaware

  • “View sample syllabi from various disciplines, including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Nutrition and Dietetics”
  • “Videos to help start the discussion on how instructors and peer facilitators can resolve specific issues and challenges that may emerge in groups”
  • “Download the PBL course ratings forms and course evaluation forms”
  • “Read sample problems…”

Teaching Strategies: Case-Based Teaching 

Center for Research on Teaching and Learning   University of Michigan

“With case-based teaching, students develop skills in analytical thinking and reflective judgment by reading and discussing complex, real-life scenarios. The articles in this section explain how to use cases in teaching and provide case studies for the natural sciences, social sciences, and other disciplines.”

How to Use Investigative Cases with Examples

SERC Starting Point Project: Teaching Introductory Geoscience   Carleton College

“Practicing scientists define problems, develop methodologies and strategies to investigate those problems, and present their findings to persuade other members of their community of the reasonableness of their findings. Investigative case based learning strategies involve a corresponding three phase process based on problem posing, problem solving, and peer persuasion. Each phase of ICBL and key strategies are listed below. The links lead to further explanation of these strategies and application to an environmental science case Goodbye Honeybuckets.”

Employing Case-Based Learning

Center for Teaching Excellence   University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey

“Topics include: introduction to case-based learning; finding, designing and evaluating cases; and methods and tools for case-based teaching. Provides examples of several online case repositories in the health professions plus links to additional resources.”
