Teaching Environmental Policy through Case Studies

A recent case study looks into the benefits of having students write their own case studies. Writing case studies can offer students a lot of practical skills and benefits throughout the courses and after. Skills gained during the exercise can be directly translated to the workplace. In addition, the study showed that students took more ownership over their work and learned more throughout the course.

Often in college-level coursework, skills are developed throughout the length of the courses, but the work itself has no further value after completion. When students worked on one case study throughout a given course, they ended with the ability to submit their case study for publication. This ultimately allowed for further development of the skills learned, stronger professional portfolios, and better opportunities after school.
