Case studies provide relevant, meaningful experiences in which learners can discover and abstract useful concepts and principles. In mini-case studies you can provide realistic, real-world experience by presenting a series of concise but complete examples.
- Start with a statement of the situation.
- Introduce any characters, objects, or organization of importance.
- Spell out crucial relationship among them.
- Alternate questions and answers about the situation.
- Questions should require the learner to carefully examine the situation, infer facts not stated, apply principles, and deduce conclusions.
- Pose some additional questions to learners.
- Learners should post their answers in the discussion forum.
