Abstract

The case method, a problem based learning strategy, is a student centered approach whereby students analyze the given situation generally together with their friends and instructors. In 1870s, Harvard Law School began to use cases in education and later many medical and business schools explored the power of cases (Jonassen, 2004). After 1980s, the use of cases in teacher education sharply increased and it become a tradition in teacher education. Also, the technological improvements affect the way of using the case method in all fields. This paper examines the case-base instruction and traditional case-based methods. Furthermore, a prototype case model feasible to use in technology-enhanced learning environments, especially in teacher education is proposed and explained in a detailed way.
