How a Peer-led Case-based Classroom Transforms Learning


Self-directed learners are better prepared to enter the workforce, operate independently and adapt to change. Many educators therefore implement individual, student-centered strategies such as flipped classrooms, student-led discussions and case-based learning during in-class instruction.

Less common is combining these individual teaching approaches into a single lesson plan or course. Join us in this free webinar to explore how Tammy Swecker, M.Ed., B.S.D.H., used these three strategies in tandem to improve student learning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the importance of active learning and adult learning pedagogies.
  • Implement a flipped lecture learning environment.
  • Develop and facilitate peer-led, case-based learning.
