How do you like to use Case Studies in your classroom? If you don't use Case Studies, what has kept you from doing so?

I love using Case studies in the classroom but I only use them for review of material once the information has been provided in a classic lecture setting. In my program we only use a classic lecture setting but I find the case studies more engaging and thought provoking. I use it in Physiology and Pathology lectures. I also use them as an assignment tool because not the entire class participates in the case study discussion in class and with an on-line format the not so outgoing personalities have a chance to interact. I don't necessarily attach a grade to them. They are a nice tool as review for exams. In Health Professions becomes critical for transition to a clinical setting.
Students could learn many things from teachers in their graduate or professional educator program in case studies. The life science forum community is creating this https://ukessaysreviews.com/ukessays-com-review/ opportunity in july to teach them from case study.
