Registration is now open for the 20th Annual Conference on Case Study Teaching in Science presented by the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science

National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science

Registration is now open for our Fall Case Study Teaching in Science Conference, September 27-28, 2019, in Buffalo, NY, sponsored by the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science, at the Buffalo Marriott Niagara.

Our conference offers sessions for both the beginner and advanced case study teacher and is formatted for college and high school teachers.  In addition to our distinguished group of session teachers, we have brought in a noted scholar to address the general conference, Joseph Kim, Associate Professor in Psychology, Neuroscience and Behavior, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada to present on "Motivating Durable Learning: Focused Attention Through Instructional Design."

Workshop sessions this year will cover teaching cases using backward design, multimedia learning principles, developing cases using biointeractive videos, high school methods of engaging students, and more! See below for a full listing of workshop sessions and other information.

Our conference is led by Dr. Clyde (Kipp) Herreid, SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor and Director of the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science.  The conference is open to anyone interested in case study education, including high school teachers and international teachers. It also includes a poster session and we would be pleased if you submitted a proposal by September 10, 2019.
 
Register now http://www.nccsts.org/conference.php for this rewarding two-day Case Study Teaching in Science Conference, September 27-28, 2019.

Poster Session: We have just learned about a great new poster design for all of us who attend meetings and have experienced the numbing experience that a poster session can produce. Please take a look at this new academic poster design concept on NPR and watch the video about the concept. This year, we will be offering a complimentary copy of our Start with a Story book and a one year subscription to access our collection of case study teaching notes and answer keys, to the first 15 poster submissions that are received and accepted. You must register, pay and attend the conference, in order to receive the materials, which will be distributed at the conference. To submit your poster for consideration, apply at http://sciencecases.lib.buffalo.edu/cs/training/conference/poster-session.asp. We encourage you to use the new poster concept in your presentation.
