                              Workshop Schedule, Fall 2009
  

    Case studies are true stories, "reality bites," that educators employ to bridge the gap between theory and practice. They also serve to create new dynamics in the classroom by breaking down the traditional role of professors -- they become facilitators of a more student-centered learning process. The following series is designed to explore the case study method and strengthen the use of these powerful pedagogical tools.

            Session I: Innovative Practices Using Case Studies
            Tuesday, September 22, 12:30-2:30 p.m., 14-270
            
This session will introduce the series and highlight current  
            practices by Baruch professors who use cases and other similar
            artifacts to involve students in the analysis of situations related to
            professional practice. List of speakers:
          
                         John Casey, SPA (Moderator & Introduction)
                         David Birdsell, SPA
