Engage Students and Encourage Critical Thinking
Higher education prepares students for a future that is certain, and in many ways, uncertain. That’s why it’s critical for universities and colleges to teach students how to be great problem solvers and analytical thinkers. Gale Case Studies has been developed to help undergraduate students strengthen their critical-thinking skills by using historical content to evaluate contemporary issues. This new resource not only promotes the growth of transferrable skills, it encourages students to think analytically about topics related to LGBTQ+ rights, public health concerns, political extremism, and race, which will benefit them in other areas of study and later in their careers.
Organized by topic, each Gale Case Studies module consists of a collection of focused case studies supported by a curated collection of relevant primary sources. Students and instructors can access case studies, related discussion questions, and links to curated content, making remote and online learning accessible for everyone. Setting this resource apart, its LMS integration allows materials to be seamlessly embedded into students’ workflow without the need for a separate application. The online format and wide range of content give learners a destination where they can dive into topical issues, prepare for informed, course-related discussions, and become more comfortable using primary sources for class projects and research papers.
