In my profession as a automotive mechanic,our more advanced training scenario’s at Lexus Canada almost exclusively revolve around case studies, so this concept is very familiar to me.I feel, like digital storytelling, that it can be applied to almost any learning situation.[My brother is in med. school,and they use case studies all the time]. Case studies allow students to self direct their learning,encourage development of critical thinking and reasoning skills , and allows them to progress from conceptualization stage to application. Case studies seem like a great way to assess a students ability to progress beyond dualistic thinking, to more complex stages of intellectual,and ethical development,[transformative learning]. It is a learning tool that I will definitely incorporate into my classroom.
