  • Add poll on what the participants’ roles may be – ED, Vol Supervisor, Trainer, etc.
  • Raise hand if you’ve used a case study anywhere (CASA training, school, etc.)Keep hand up if used case study in CASA/GAL training
  • Allow participants to jot down ideas, then clear comments and animate the two general times when case studies are used:Skills application (like a flight simulator) in a safe environmentHarris-Price and Kaylee Moore case are examplesAfter Action Review (like the Army or in a hospital)
  • 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
  • Small group (breakout room activity) – take about 10 minutes to develop an outline for a case study you could use in an upcoming in-service training in order to spark discussionIf you need help getting started, the focus of your case study
  • Solicit questions about the process of creating and/or facilitating case studies
