My name is Julie Dais and I teach introductory biology, as well as anatomy and physiology and pathophysiology (to nursing students) at Okanagan College in British Columbia. There are many great case studies that can be used in the classroom associated with LifeSciTRC, but I'd love to see more related to botany! Please reply with any ideas that you may have because I am sure I am not the only educator looking for this.

Have you tried the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science at http://sciencecases.lib.buffalo.edu/cs/ ? The collection is mainly Health or Physiology in nature, but there are some that work for general Biology and you may find something that works for Botany.
Yes, I have. I actually went to their 5 day case study writing workshop in May to learn how to write my own! Extremely worthwhile.
That is great! I've been wanting to do that but I haven't had the opportunity when the workshops are offered.
I've actually found that its tough to use other people's case studies most of the time since they never exactly match what I'm trying to teach - although its kind of time-consuming, if you want to develop some from scratch (or alter some that you've found - the website Janice suggested is fantastic), there are really good step-by-step design tips here: www.teambasedlearning.org. Good luck!
When students don't have time to write essay. They can find help on sites to improve there writing skills. I found a great service they helped me to write my paper for me . I trully recommend.
Your share is the great knowledge I have gathered, you are an important person I admire, thank you happy wheels
