Omtale Case Studies for the First Year
Case Studies for the First Year takes students on a journey through collaboration and teamwork that will open their minds to new possibilities, require critical and creative problem solving, and help them develop sound decision-making abilities. This brief yet substantive approach to critical thinking is delivered in an inviting and relevant manner that will interest traditional and nontraditional first-year students. It includes an introduction on effectively using case studies in preparing students for participatory and proactive thinking. Forty-two dynamic case studies are used to engage students in evocative discussions, encourage cooperative learning and problem solving, teach the value of teamwork, and strengthen listening and communication skills. The cases address issues such as change, personal responsibility, academic success and integrity, campus resources, diversity, technology, safety, careers, and more. Each case is derived from contemporary, real-life incidents at colleges and businesses across the nation. Each case prompts readers to think critically and solve problems about issues related to college success.
