Case Study Scaffolding in Hematology Courses

From the 2022 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (recorded 3/14/2022)
Presented by Malissa Norfolk, MBA, SH(ASCP)CM

The utilization of case studies as an assessment tool in hematology courses is beneficial to students as it forces them to critically use the information that they have learned about hematologic disorders. Incorporation of digital microscopy to case studies will also be discussed, but is not necessary for the case studies to be effective.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the importance of incorporating case study-based assessment tools.
  • Discuss the incorporation of digital microscopy in hematology case studies.
  • Demonstrate the scaffolding of case studies in hematology courses.
