Case Teaching and Learning

Co-leads: Jane Kushma, Jean Slick

Brief Description

The Case Teaching and Learning (CTL) SIG facilitates the exchange and co-creation of case and instructional materials and supports skill development in implementing and evaluating this method. The SIG offers a forum for educators interested in developing EM cases and the pedagogical approaches to use them. Case teaching offers a rich environment for learning to take place, helping students explore how what they have learned in the classroom applies to real-world situations. Cases help students develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. Working on cases in groups may help students develop interpersonal and teamwork skills.

Purpose

  1. To create a resource repository of emergency management cases, teaching resources, and related research.
  2. To provide a forum for exchange and collaboration regarding case development; methods for delivery; and, evaluation and feedback.
  3. To develop strategies and tools to improve teaching effectiveness when using cases.
