This site provides a single repository for all resources developed by and for the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Case-Based Teaching and Learning Center.
You will find here a library of public health teaching cases designed to engage students in real-life situations that reflect issues they will face as public health professionals.
You will also find resources on how to teach using the case-method, as well as help for writing your own cases.
A teaching case describes a specific situation in enough depth to allow students - who take the role of the protagonist in the case - to apply the public health knowledge and skills they are developing.
The case presents an issue that can be better defined and understood through class-based discussion and multiple perspectives. A case may be based on a real organization and individuals; on published information in the public domain; or on an instructor's personal experience/knowledge.
