There is a very exciting opportunity on the horizon for instructors looking to learn more about integrating case studies into their classes, which can lead to new strategies for teaching research skills and may help instructors revamp or fine-tune their multimodal assignments in ENGL110. The Center for Teaching & Assessment will be holding its First Friday Faculty Roundtable in Gore Hall Room 208 from 3:30-5:00 p.m. on November 1, 2019. All of these events are brilliant, but this one sounds particularly compelling.
Mark your calendars now! Complimentary food and drink plus a discussion of pedagogical approaches . . . what more could you want?

Dear Teaching colleagues,
Case studies are stories built around real problems and situations. You can use case studies to teach in almost any discipline, and they are a great way to help students grapple with the complexity of real-world issues. If you’ve thought about incorporating case studies in your courses, but weren’t sure where and how to start, this roundtable is for you.
Join CTAL on November 1st from 3:30-5:00 in 208 Gore Hall where you’ll get a chance to walk through the decisions involved in adopting case studies in your courses, learn where to find repositories of case studies in your disciplines, and ask questions of colleagues who are already using case studies. Designed with input from faculty in multiple disciplines, this roundtable will offer attendees in any department a chance to integrate case studies into an existing course. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss how to implement case study teaching with their colleagues.
