Stevenson University
Stevenson, Maryland 21153

Subject: Chemistry

I have been using case studies for the past 4-5 years. The students really enjoy learning from case studies. This is done as a group project. This helps them to interact with each other and improves their critical thinking.

Paul Narguizian

Associate Professor
Biological Sciences
California State University, Los Angeles
Los Angeles, California 90032-8201
pnargui@calstatela.edu
Subject: Biology

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.

See the Center for Integrated Learning in Higher Education website at www.becker.edu/network/cithe. The Center is designed to be a collaborative resource for those engaging in, or interested in being involved with, integrated learning. While CITHE is not exclusively case-study directed, we have found that case study methodology lends itself well to integrated learning.
