Using a Case Study: Gandhi and Indian Independence
- Course Section Description:
What can we learn from a case study of one person’s life? Are individuals driving motors of history or are they simply “thrown up” by social forces? This course explores these questions and their implications for teaching by looking closely at the life of Mohandas Gandhi and his role in the Indian independence movement. Participants will also learn how to create a teaching case study.
Note: This is a self-paced course accessible for one year after enrollment, and not eligible for graduate credit.
