Atwood Publishing's Case Studies Collection
Atwood Publishing is launching this exciting new project, along with one of our most prolific authors on postsecondary teaching and learning, William M. Timpson. The Case Studies came about as a result of one of Bill’s most cherished beliefs about learning—that is, that we reach a higher level of understanding and deepen our learning when we are able to apply information to a real-life situation. The project also reflects the belief that academic learning can be readily applied outside of academia—and should be! And, finally, we think that most people like a good story—that we like to find out about how others have made something work or that we get invited in to take on different roles and voices to explore a range of possible solutions or responses.
Bill Timpson, along with several collaborators, has created a series of Case Studies on different topics relevant to education. They are constructed with an agreed upon format, through which students and educators discuss events and the various theoretical foundations that have or could have informed the process. Each set of Case Studies will have a theme and new sets will be made available in the near future. Once we begin to post new Case Studies, additional ones will follow as they become available.
Know that while these cases have been trialed with classes and audiences in higher education, each should be accessible to other audiences, to students in middle or high school, to faith-based or community groups, and to agencies, businesses, or other organization that want to explore these issues.
