Case Method of Instruction-Outreach Project

     The Case Method of Instruction (CMI) Outreach Project aims to increase awareness of the case method of instruction as an alternative or supplement to more traditional methods of early intervention personnel preparation and to increase the number of instructors who are skilled in using the method.

     The project conducts workshops for preservice and inserviceimage instructors in early childhood special education, early childhood education, social work, psychology, nursing, and the allied health professions (occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology). The workshops provide instructors with a philosophical basis for using CMI, intensive instruction in facilitating case method discussions, and assistance in incorporating CMI into their existing training activities. The project also serves as a general resource for all instructors who use CMI in their training of early intervention personnel.

     The CMI-Outreach Project is funded through the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (Grant # H324R020077) and operates as part of Peabody College's Department of Special Education at Vanderbilt University, Nashville TN.
