Using Cases in Higher Education: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators is an essential resource created for faculty and administrators who utilize case studies to analyze, assess, and respond to the complex and difficult issues facing higher education leaders. While this volume will prove useful with any case study, it is specifically designed to complement the series of casebooks and teaching notes, starting with Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies and Teaching Notes to Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies.
Using Cases in Higher Education will help instructors to tap into the potential and promise of teaching and learning with cases. Discussions of case studies enable instructors to energize their classroom environments and to engage participants with the theoretical and practice-oriented aspects of case material. Students can systematically analyze and reflect on realistic, fact-based leadership and administrative dilemmas in a safe atmosphere while discussing, debating, and defending various points of view.
Using Cases in Higher Education offers instructors and discussion leaders a wealth of helpful advice and insights and can be used in a wide variety of instructional settings such as graduate degree programs, professional development institutes, executive education programs and conferences, campus-based administrative and leadership seminars, and in-service workshops and retreats.
Using Cases in Higher Education: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators has two companion volumes: Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies and Teaching Notes to Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies. Casebook I: FacultyEmployment Policies presents six case studies that highlight particular challenges regarding faculty employment. Teaching Notes to Casebook I provides detailed suggestions and strategies for using these cases to lead effective classroom and workshop discussions.
