Teaching with Cases Online: A Web-Based Seminar
Tuesday, February 24, 2015 - Thursday, March 12, 2015

Seminar Overview
Are you looking for strategies and techniques to improve your case-based online course? If so, register now for the web-based seminar on Teaching with Cases Online. By participating in synchronous and asynchronous activities over 3 weeks, attendees will:

  1. learn about multiple case discussion facilitation and debrief approaches for both asynchronous and synchronous environments;
  2. experience these approaches as both students and instructors;
  3. review assessment strategies tailored to these multiple approaches.
As is true in the case method, you will learn as much from your fellow participants as you will from the seminar facilitator.

Registration Requirements
Participation is limited to faculty who already know how to teach with cases, but perhaps have never taught an online case-based class, or if they have, are looking to refine their skills. This seminar is offered only to teaching faculty at degree-granting institutions. Registrations will be cancelled for corporate trainers, government employees, and teachers in other non-degree-granting programs.
