Tools for Indirect Learning Methods, continued

Case studies and problems utilized as learning tools should include the following:
  • Questions or problems devised to represent one or more points to be learned or previously learned in classroom or laboratory-type activities
  • Supportive data to construct one or more solutions to the problem
  • Any additional information or guidance required to construct a solution
Steps for incorporation into the learning process:
  1. Present appropriate preliminary material in a proper format, either in a single learning experience or a collection of experiences over a period of time.
  2. Summarize all presented material during the initial learning activities and as a follow-up before using indirect methods for expanding on the basic material.
  3. Present cases/problems to be considered and structure the collective students to allow appropriate time to devise/present possible solutions.
  4. Regroup and discuss/summarize the presented solutions.
  5. Allow time for discussion/adaptation of the presented solutions to present the expected result/outcome.
  6. Allow summary of the activity to include question and answer session as needed.
