CBL 101: How to Create and Facilitate Effective Case-based Learning Experiences, Beth Altschafl, PhD; Amy Stickford Becker, MA

Case-based learning (CBL) is a staple of health professions education at the UWSMPH. Engaging students in problem-solving around a case provides an opportunity to apply knowledge and supports long-term transfer and retention of learning. This interactive workshop provides an opportunity to explore case-based learning in the curriculum. Attendees will participate in a "hot pepper" case-based activity from a learner perspective (don't worry - no hot pepper expertise or taste-testing is required). During the session, participants will explore best practices for designing and facilitating case-based learning and brainstorm ways to incorporate effective CBL into their own teaching.


  • Design a case-based learning activity that follows best practices
  • Examine curriculum and modify activities to incorporate features of case-based learning
  • Effectively facilitate a case-based learning session
  • Evaluate a case-based learning session to identify opportunities for improvement
