Set-up: Context, background information, problem, challengeStory: What happened, specifics on what various characters have done to this pointResolution: How it was resolved, where are the teachable moments, what was good, bad or ugly (military: AARs, hospitals: M&Ms)Time for the learners to get involved in the story (simulated experience) then a de-brief, search for teachable moments, what would you do differently in the field, what would you keep the same
Comparison between just telling information, using a tool such as a true/false quiz and using a case study to engage the learners in information
