Case Studies in the Environment is a journal for peer-reviewed case study articles, case study pedagogy articles, and a repository for editor-reviewed case study slides.
Most instructors and environmental professionals who have utilized case studies in the classroom and in their work have found them to be a valuable tool for understanding pressing environmental issues. However, within the classroom environment one of the main obstacles to using a case-based instructional method is lack of preparation time, with most instructors currently preparing their own case studies. Additionally, developing effective discussion questions to scaffold case-based learning exercises is an imposing challenge. And case studies are also often not subjected to sufficient academic rigor, undermining their effectiveness and credibility. Case Studies in the Environment addresseses each of these these challenges.
Aims and Scope
Case Studies in the Environment is a journal for peer reviewed case study articles, case study pedagogy articles, and a repository for editor-reviewed case study slides. A case study, in the context of environmental issues, involves close examination of an actual environmental problem or issue, commonly involving a decision, a challenge, or an opportunity faced by individuals, an organization, or a community or society at large. The journal aims to inform faculty, students, researchers, educators, professionals, and policymakers on case studies and best practices in environmental sciences and studies.
