Case Study Collection



Participants of the Teaching Socio-Environmental (S-E) Synthesis with Case Studies short course have developed a collection of case studies, each focusing on learning goals critical for understanding and practicing S-E synthesis. These case studies provide information about the case itself, detailed teaching notes, and all materials to be used with students in the activity. Many provide suggestions for ways to modify the activities to suit different time constraints, levels, or course goals. The durations of these cases range from a small number of class periods to entire semesters. Several of these cases have been tested in the classroom and/or peer reviewed.
