I've used cases in professional (business, technical, and scientific) writing courses. I find that they force students to understand information more fully, work collaboratively, and think critically - attributes of professionals in the various fields in and outside of academia. Since case studies are inherently problem solving, they demonstrate to students the difference between knowing facts and understanding what they mean and what they can be used for. In other words, case studies prepare students for real workplaces more effectively than typical assignments since they stimulate the kind of activities actually performed by practicing professionals.

Subject: Biology

I use case studies in introductory biology as well as ecology courses at several levels (non-majors to upper-division). Cases get students to think of their own scientific questions and how to answer them; give them practice in interpreting data and drawing conclusions; and motivate them to learn and apply general concepts to a specific situation, question, or problem.

I have research and publication interests in animal behavior, the role of natural history collections in understanding evolution, evolution education, and the nature, philosophy and history of science. There is a critical need for effective evolution education. Our lab investigates some of the evidence that demonstrates that need and analyzes several aspects of the nature of science and how it can be illustrated during the course of evolution instruction, primarily at the high school and college level. Biological evolution is a critical component to understanding the biodiversity of life on earth. Teachers and students of science alike address the topic of evolution as a series of facts which tend to focus greatly on definitions and descriptions about life on earth while missing the underlying nature of science (NOS) which was and is currently being used to explain how living things have evolved over time.

I was a PBL tutor in pharmaceutical sciences for one year and saw first hand the critical thinking, communication, and research skills developed by students using this pedagogical technique. After attending your workshop, I began writing cases for my classes. Students like the case method because it allows them to work in groups, applying the knowledge they learn. I like it because it fosters content exploration and skills development.

I have used case studies in science education and nursing courses for over 15 years. With a background in cognitive science and research in conceptual change and model based reasoning, I find that case based learning provides the greatest opportunity for students to take control of their learning and to construct complex mental models of topics that are applicable to their field. While my background is in science, nursing, and instructional technology, in my position as campus dean, I teach faculty in all areas such as business, IT, health science to use cases to enrich the learning experiences in their classes.

This approach has made it easier to get to know students better and has helped to inspire interest in and understanding of the scientific process.

I believe that the use of case studies will allow students to achieve this application/understanding.

Case studies give real life applications that are interesting to students. They also involve critical thinking by students. In addition, the case method encourages students to collaborate and solve problems together, as well as independently.
