FEMA- Emergency Management Institute Higher Education Program & National Training Liaison Presents Teaching with Cases Webinar Series- Session X
“Webinar #1: Overview and "The Case for the Case”

This webinar series provides an overview of the use of cases in teaching emergency management higher education programs. The first session is designed to stimulate thinking about the diversity of ways in which cases can be used in teaching. During the webinar, the rationale for using cases to support learning and assessment will be explained, and three different types of learning outcomes associated with the use of cases will be offered. Examples of a variety of approaches to using cases at both the undergraduate and graduate levels will be offered, and principles for designing case-based learning activities will be discussed. The remaining webinars in this series will focus in more detail on specific approaches to the use of cases in teaching in emergency management higher education programs for both teaching and assessment.
