CASE Foundations

CASE Foundations is a free, asynchronous, virtual professional development training on CASE pedagogy and implementation. The training is facilitated via five modules. Each module provides teachers with background knowledge on the following topics:

  • The CASE Design Process

  • Assessment

  • Instructional Practices

  • Inquiry-Based Practices

  • Curriculum Navigation


CASE Foundations is optional, but encouraged for teachers seeking additional background knowledge in CASE curriculum. Teachers completing the training receive a certificate for two hours of professional development. Educators seeking probationary certification must complete CASE Foundations.


The training begins with Module 1. Access instructions for each subsequent module are provided as you move through the training. A certificate for your training will appear in your MyCASE account. Certificates are added periodically. If you need immediate access to your certificate, please contact Chelsea Bowen at
