  • Two day Summer Institute: Tuesday and Wednesday, June 20-21, 2017
  • Optional One Day Workshop on Writing Cases: Thursday June 22, 2017

The Summer Institute of the Enduring Legacies Native Cases Initiative will build on eleven years of work developing teaching interdisciplinary case studies on significant issues in Indian Country and offering workshops for educators to network and learn how to use the cases in their classes.

Our interdisciplinary collection of cases covers a wide range of topics applicable to all academic fields. Problem-based learning, place-based learning and collaborative learning are the cornerstones of our approach. Cases promote student engagement and critical thinking in the context of complex and pressing real world issues. They are a terrific way of promoting diversity.

At this institute, we will practice working through cases collaboratively to learn how to facilitate case analysis and discussion.

For the first time we are also offering an optional one-day workshop on Writing Cases.

You are invited to register for one or both of these events that will take place at Little Creek Resort Hotel.

Thanks to the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians for supporting our Summer Institute.
