UW-Madison developed successful minicourses that include case-based learning scenarios to develop critical skills that can be incorporated into online or blended courses. These courses, currently used for online faculty development, range from two to four weeks and emphasize skill development and demonstration of mastery through completion of interactive case scenarios and individual projects. Learners become active participants inside the case scenario narrative, enabling practice, feedback, and personal reflection, essential for developing professional expertise. The minicourses also incorporate expert coaching and personalized feedback. Session participants will choose a microtopic and start to plan elements of an interactive case scenario.

Outcomes: Identify elements that will impact the learning experience to create a successful case scenario * Select a microtopic to start to plan elements of an interactive case scenario * Discuss what type of feedback and reflection would be required to develop professional expertise
