In case-based learning (CBL), students learn through discussion of real or hypothetical events. CBL can be used for individual, small-group, or whole-group learning, although it is most frequently implemented in small-group settings. CBL is appropriate for all disciplines, student levels, and course formats, including online, blended, and face-to-face settings.
