NCCSTS Case Collection



Enrich your students’ educational experience with case-based teaching

The NCCSTS Case Collection, created and curated by the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science, on behalf of the University at Buffalo, contains nearly a thousand peer-reviewed case studies on a variety of topics in all areas of science. Written by STEM educators for use at the undergraduate, graduate, and high school level, each case study includes teaching notes and many also have answer keys. The detailed teaching notes typically include a case study summary, teaching objectives, information about the intended audience and how the case may be taught, and a list of references and resources.
