Using Cases in Higher Education will help instructors to tap into the potential and promise of teaching and learning with cases. Discussions of case studies enable instructors to energize their classroom environments and to engage participants with the theoretical and practice–oriented aspects of case material. Students can systematically analyze and reflect on realistic, fact–based leadership and administrative dilemmas in a safe atmosphere while discussing, debating, and defending various points of view.
Using Cases in Higher Education offers instructors and discussion leaders a wealth of helpful advice and insights and can be used in a wide variety of instructional settings such as graduate degree programs, professional development institutes, executive education programs and conferences, campus–based administrative and leadership seminars, and in–service workshops and retreats.
Using Cases in Higher Education: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators has two companion volumes:
