BriefCASE is a professional development workshop to provide teachers training for the instruction related to modular CASE courses. Once a teacher has successfully completed BriefCASE professional development session, the teacher is certified to teach the specific CASE course.
BriefCASE sessions provide teachers important background related to the pedagogy used in CASE curricula and practice teaching various lessons to prepare them for classroom instruction. Teachers are required to attend the entire workshop and CASE Institute instructors determine if each teacher is adequately prepared to provide instruction using CASE curricula.
TIPS AND TRICKS FOR SUCCESS AT A BriefCASE
- Think like both a teacher and a student and take notes of your thoughts and potential student responses when completing lessons. It helps in the classroom.
- Use the post-its provided at the CASE Institute to make notes and suggestions for each lesson. It helps jog your memory when you’re setting up the lesson for students.
- Work with different people and groups (if your lead teacher hasn’t already forced you to do that). Take advantage of being with educators who can share ideas and enhance learning.
