Case Method Teaching

  1. 1. Case Studies/Problem-Based Learning <ul><li>Mini-presentation </li></ul><ul><li>Physics 11 (Concept and System) </li></ul><ul><li>Tonight’s topic of case studies and problem-based learning </li></ul>
  2. 2. FUSION
  3. 3. Energy Inside the Atom <ul><li>e=mc 2 (audio file) </li></ul><ul><li>The Big Bang Theory </li></ul><ul><li>Fusion and the creation of the elements </li></ul><ul><li>How does this compare to Fission? (note: a neutron is electrically neutral) </li></ul>
  4. 4. Fusion reactors <ul><li>Easy in theory </li></ul><ul><li>Very difficult in reality </li></ul><ul><li>Require high temperatures (150 million degrees) and pressures </li></ul><ul><li>France in 30 years </li></ul>http://www.efda.org/multimedia/downloads/animations/the_highest_temperatures.mov
  5. 5. Case Method / Project-Based Learning
  6. 6. A Personal Case Study
  7. 7. - a student-centred, problem-based, interdisciplinary approach to learning - has been adopted by universities around the world. The McMaster Model
  8. 8. Case Learning student-centred problem-based high interest narratives interdisciplinary approach issues require ‘sustained examination’ complex situations (information, conflict, values)
  9. 9. A case is a story or narrative of a real life situation that sets up a problem or unresolved tension for the students to analyze and resolve. Go to Case Study… C. Roland (Chris) Christensen
  10. 10. How to Create Cases <ul><li>Select the theme you want to teach. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask yourself if there is a current story on this topic. </li></ul><ul><li>Collect: </li></ul><ul><li>newspaper articles, </li></ul><ul><li>storybooks from the library, </li></ul><ul><li>internet blogs, </li></ul><ul><li>online journal entries, </li></ul><ul><li>photos, </li></ul><ul><li>anything to make the story more real. </li></ul><ul><li>Create your story. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Project-Based Learning Watch Project Videos
  12. 12. Philosophy Behind Case-Method/Project-Based Learning <ul><li>Students can see science in context . </li></ul><ul><li>Students learn better if there is an overarching theme that they can observe, question and interact with. </li></ul><ul><li>Students are far more interested in real learning environments than ones that are abstract, artificial or contrived. </li></ul><ul><li>Students can construct their own knowledge more easily if it’s based on their life experience. </li></ul><ul><li>Real projects present unstaged and unexpected situations that promote critical thinking . </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers cannot provide experiences without limits the way projects do. </li></ul><ul><li>Projects stimulate multiple intelligences . </li></ul>
