Bringing the Power of Stories to Education by Jill Hopke cites both our Science Case Network RCN-UBE and the BioQUEST Investigative Cases Project in her reflections of the March 16, 2012 UW-Madison workshop, How Stories Teach, that focused on integrating cases studies into science education to internationalize curriculum.
Participants explore a case on the commercial apple industry and water footprints at the BioEd Workshop held at the University of Western Cape in Cape Town, ZA in 2009.

The SCN website hosted resources for the workshop’s Keynote Address that emphasized that science education is global education.

Note from Web Editor:  If you have a workshop presentation coming up, consider linking your resources on our site for a broader community outreach.  You could submit a post or work with me to set up your own page.

You might also wish to create a Group for your participants to join.  They can post comments and come back to link up with members of your group after the workshop. Another advantage of bringing a group to SCN is they can use our community to explore cases, find like-minded members, and learn about upcoming events.
