Session 4A:
Multimedia Case Studies: Making Real World Decisions in the Classroom

Speaker: Michael Shapiro, Kirsten Lundberg, Ryan Kelsey, Rob Garfield
1:10 PM - 2:00 PM

Multimedia case studies go beyond the traditional paper-based format to actively place students in an environment that simulates a real scenario through video, email, paper briefs, and discussion with peers. Case studies are valuable for developing and maturing students' analytic, decision-making, and leadership skills. This session will provide an overview of the pedagogy supporting case studies and will highlight examples of different types of multimedia case studies used at Columbia University. Professor Michael Shapiro will demonstrate the teaching and learning aspects of multimedia case studies in the classroom based on his experience at the Journalism School.
