What is next for cases in teaching and learning evaluation? A call to action

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We take this final article to reflect on the “case” made for the use of cases in teaching and learning in evaluation. We provide an overview of what has been learned about teaching and learning with cases through this volume and discuss what counts as good case teaching and learning based on the other articles. This article identifies the critical importance of context in evaluation practice and shares our belief that there is no way we can adequately prepare future evaluation practitioners for their work without using cases in teaching and learning evaluation. We share the future efforts of the Case Collaborative, including the development and dissemination of a case repository for instructors of evaluation. We end by reflecting on how we can get new evaluators to think like professional, seasoned practitioners and providing a call to action to our readers.
