Web-based, Case-based Learning

I’m headed to Charlottesville tonight for a meeting tomorrow about an ongoing effort to develop and integrate web-based cases into educational leadership preparation programs.  The Educational Theory into Practice Software (ETIPS) is being developed by Sara Dexter and Pam Tucker at UVA, and they’re currently working with a test-bed group of ed. leadership professors across the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The multimedia cases “allow students multiple and varied opportunities to practice making decisions guided by theoretical principles and thereby improve their critical thinking and instructional decision-making skills.”  I’m intrigued by the project and the possibilities the cases hold, and ANYTHING that models effective technology integration to aspiring school leaders is great.  I look forward to reporting the successes of this endeavor and to the day when more of my colleagues in the ed. leadership professoriate incorporate these sorts of technologies in their teaching.
