Adapting Case Studies for Synchronous and Asynchronous Online Courses

Denise R. Cook-Snyder and Daniel G. Ehlinger


Case studies are an effective active learning method that increases student engagement and are readily adaptable from in-person to online learning environments. In this perspective, Neuroscience Case Network fellows (NeuroCaseNet; NSF-RCN-UBE Grant #1624104) provide specific examples of how case studies were successfully adapted for synchronous and asynchronous online learning, including general strategies and best practices for adapting case studies into both online learning environments.
