Improving Case Based Learning in Higher Education
Learning with cases lets students engage with authentic and complex problems and gain experience with diverse and unpredictable outcomes. Emerging technologies can support and enhance case-based learning, letting teachers and students develop learning environments as never before - but this will require responsive and participatory approaches to research, design, and development.
The authors demonstrate how participatory approaches can help make educational technologies transformative, and interdisciplinary case studies show how new methods can inform:
curriculum development and course redesign
the introduction of case-based teaching and learning, student research projects, and technology-enhanced learning environments across disciplines
the development of interactive learning resources for lectures, seminars, online environments, and independent learning
While exploring the interplay of technology and pedagogy, Improving Case Based Learning in Higher Education addresses the importance of participatory approaches, how to deal with complexity and change, and the nature of diverse learning environments.
