Tip - Teaching with Cases
Case-based learning allows students to learn about the complexities of their field through descriptions or narratives of real-life situations. Long used in business and nursing, cases are now used in teaching other disciplines. Introductions to teaching with cases can be found at Queen's University Centre for Teaching and Learning and The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey
