HHMI and Case Studies

If you use HHMI Biointeractive resources and case studies found at the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science, then you’ll appreciate this announcement.

The National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science is collaborating with HHMI BioInteractive to pair case studies in our collection with their wonderful resources.  Below is a list of the first group of cases (32 in total) that now have HHMI BioInteractive materials associated with them through the Videos and/or Supplemental Materials tabs of each case’s Overview Record.

I have not tried these yet, though I have used many of the case studies in the past with my AP Biology students.  I’ve even been able to modify a few to work with my anatomy and physiology class.    I’ve also made a few case studies of my own based on the format used by NCCSTS.  “A Tiny Heart” is a case study I created based on a story of a personal friend whose baby was born with a heart defect.
