Educator’s guide to the Open Case Studies
We have written an online book to help guide educators on how to most effectively use the Open Case Studies (either in or outside of the classroom), various entry points to using the case studies (including an R package to enable modular use of the case studies), how to modify and adapt components of the case studies for the classroom, and how to contribute new case studies.
