Culturally Relevant Case Studies

A friend of mine sent an article link that I thought some of you would be interested in reviewing as you modify fall course offerings. The article published in Frontiers is titled “Enduring Legacies Native Cases: Enriching Online Programs with Culturally Relevant Curriculum” discusses a case based curriculum developed by a group of Washington colleges for delivery in the classroom and online. Early findings have found that the learner centered cases have helped students succeed in degree programs.

Program cases, teaching strategies and resources can be found on the Evergreen State College website (http://www.evergreen.edu/tribal/cases/index.htm ). Current subjects included in the collection are: art, biology, business, chemistry, economics, education, environmental studies, ethics, geology, health, history, management, Native American studies, natural resources, political science, public administration, social work, and sociology.

Educators are encouraged to use the cases and to provide feedback to the Enduring Legacies Native Case Project.
