Our summer workshop will be held May 26-30, 2014, at the University at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY. Registration will open in late January. We will send advance notification to our mailing list of when registration will open online. If you wish to receive the notification, please register for our mailing list.
Description: Our five-day workshop focuses on training science faculty to teach with case studies, to write their own cases, and to assess their students’ learning with cases. The first three days of the workshop focus on learning the case study method, with demonstrations and time to prepare cases of your own. During the final two days of the workshop, all participants are required to teach a case before a student audience using a case they have developed during the workshop. In addition, workshop participants are expected to produce a case study within six months of the workshop for our national, peer-reviewed case collection.
Dates: May 26-30, 2014
Cost: To be determined.
