This PD webinar explores the use of micro case studies as essential tools for the new age VET educator. It develops a shared understanding of what micro case studies are, how they are developed and refined and most importantly how they can be used as powerful aids in vocational training and assessment.

The webinar works through a number of examples drawn from different fields and downloadable step-by-step guidelines enable participants to undertake their own projects as follow ups after the webinar to develop their own libraries of micro-case studies directly relevant to their specific areas of training.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this webinar, participants will have the knowledge and skills to:

  • explain what a micro case study is
  • develop, validate and refine micro case studies in their area of training and expertise
  • use micro studies as aids in both vocational training and assessment, and
  • build retrievable libraries of case studies in topic areas for ongoing use in vocational training and assessment.
