A case study approach 02042014

  1. 1. CHECET Emerging Technology Course 02 April 2014 Rita Kizito (
  2. 2. Why a case study approach? Problem based approach to learning Presents a way of analyzing your context to identify a learning (or teaching) challenge which needs to be resolved/ or an opportunity which requires further exploration Design a learning intervention (activity) using an appropriate ‘technology’ Present details about the situation, process, findings and reflections as a case study Opportunities to get feedback from peers & facilitators
  3. 3. Based on an Integrative Learning Design Framework (ILDF Explore Enact Evaluate Reflect Adapted from Dabbagh & Bannan Ritland (2005). For designing online learning environments
  4. 4. Reflections as ‘pit-stops’ Reflection 1: Context, challenges and outcomes Reflection 2: Research on potential tools / technologies in your disciplines Reflection 3: Established practice and affordances of selected tool / technology Reflection 4: Description of intervention Reflection 5 Reflexive account of the process of case study
  5. 5. Reflection 1: Context, challenges and outcomes (exploration) a) In which context are you teaching (institution, type of learners and learning environment )? b) What are the teaching & learning challenges/opportunities leading you to re- assess your practice? c) Intended outcome(s): Describe the objective(s) behind the practice outlined here
  6. 6. Reflection 2:Research on potential tools / technologies in your disciplines (exploration) a) Conduct a small literature review on potential tools and technologies in your discipline b) Summarize your findings c) Ask facilitators for help if you need some initial pointers
  7. 7. Reflection 3: *Established practice and affordances of selected tool / technology: (enactment) a) Established practice: Identify features of your current practice - this may include any aspects which were subsequently amended b) Affordances / benefits of technology: Describe the benefits of tool/ technology that you have selected, as experienced by learners, practitioners and/or the institution as a whole as established through your literature review, personal experience and discussion/feedback from facilitators, students and peers.
  8. 8. Reflection 4: Description of intervention (enactment) a) Describe your planned intervention. Share this reflection with colleagues, students, peers, facilitators and get feedback (formative evaluation). What did you learn? What changes could you make to your learning intervention in the light of the feedback received from peers, your class participants and facilitators? b) This will feed into your final presentation and case study.
  9. 9. Reflection 5:Reflexive account of the process of case study (evaluation) a) How did I go about exploring what I needed to do? b) How did I design and develop my learning activity/intervention ? c) How did I formatively evaluate my prototype learning activity?
