TRIZ Takes Case-Based Instruction to a Higher Level

Policy makers and educators assume that improvement in student learning and instruction requires a lengthy, slow, and detailed process. We need to challenge that assumption. The immediacy of recognizing and gathering information and making critical judgment calls induced by realistic problem scenarios can stimulate students to learn rapidly, efficiently, and effectively. And the additional benefit of the students’ heightened sense of achievement brought about by richly-detailed ‘rush of learning’ experiences may be much more valuable than the content they learn.
