What is the GSE Case Library?
The Stanford Graduate School of Education Case Library is a repository for teaching materials that concern real world situations in education, non-profits, government agencies and their reform efforts. The case materials are presented in a way that allows readers to consider multiple forms of explanation, design, and management, and thereby enhance the learning experience of students. All case materials are open to public reading and review.

A Primer on Case Teaching
One reason to use case teaching is so that students interested in research engage in an exercise ofÂ abstraction / reflection AND concretization / application. Most graduate courses at researchÂ universities expose students to a variety of interpretive modes that can be used to explain observedÂ phenomenon. A rich understanding of these interpretive approaches can be advanced through theirÂ application to particular cases. realignment
