How to Integrate this Case Study with Your Course
This case has been piloted within graduate and undergraduate courses, with discipline-specific and interdisciplinary settings, and with members of professional organizations.
Currently, the Brianna and Tanya case study is being offered to instructors and their affiliated staff and students in graduate and undergraduate level courses. It is designed to supplement existing course curricula.
Instructors have used the case study effectively by:
- Assigning the entire case at one time as homework, followed either by in-class discussion or a reflective writing assignment relevant to your course.
- Assigning sections of the case throughout the course and requiring students to prepare for in-class discussion pertinent to that section;
- Creating writing, research or presentation assignments based on specific sections of course content;
- Focusing on a specific theme present in the case that is pertinent to the course — using this as a launching point for deeper study;
- Constructing other in-class creative experiences with the case;
- Collaborating with other instructors to hold interdisciplinary discussions about the case.
