Native Case Studies Workshops and Summer Institute

Good Case Study GroupWe provide various professional development opportunities for educators to learn more about teaching and writing Native cases. Our focus is on teaching and writing cases from a Native point of view on issues important to contemporary Native people and communities. The approach is interdisciplinary with an emphasis on pedagogical strategies for using cases with collaborative learning and in both face-to-face and online classes. The workshops welcome faculty from a variety of disciplines and institutions as well as practitioners in Tribal and other organizations that might benefit from this work.

A four-day Summer Institute is held each summer during the last week in June in Olympia, Washington. One-day, off site workshops can also be scheduled at other colleges and universities. Recent workshop sites include College of the Menominee, Sinte Gleska University, Effie Kokrine Charter School, Salish Kootenai College, Northwest Indian College, the University of Alaska-Anchorage, and Central Kitsap School District. Workshops in March and April are scheduled at Antioch University-Seattle, Washington State University, and Northern Arizona University.
