Recently I read an article on case-based learning in the nutrition field. At first glimpse of the title I thought to myself, “why WOULDN’T we use this method?”
The study, a little method heavy for me, examined successes and student perceptions of case-based learning in upper level undergraduate nutrition classes. It’s an interesting read if you have the time. If not.. here’s a short summary.
- Real-world problem-based learning
- Working in groups
- Critical thinking: analyzing, evaluating, and creating
I’m definitely going to think more on how to incorporate this in future classes!
