Proposal Title

The Creative Use of Case Stories for Deeper Understanding Across Disciplines

Proposal Abstract

Extensive evidence suggests that students learn more effectively when they are actively engaged in the learning process. This session introduces instructors across disciplines to case stories , a method to creatively teach content by inviting students into meaningful, interactive situations that promote active learning through collaboration, articulation and reflection. Participants will actively work through an abbreviated case story, finding themselves transported to a cold and tension-filled Salem, Massachusetts courtroom in 1692, where they will gain a greater understanding of the case story method and how it might be used in various disciplines.
