Special Instructions:

Digital case study research - What is a case study- How can we define and describe case study research, particularly in an era wherein networked technologies create porous boundaries- This course wrestles with these questions by drawing on various fields, including education (Bartlett and Vavrus, 2017; Dyson and Genishi, 2005; Stake, 1995), social science (Yin, 2009), political science (Gerring, 2017), and sociology (Ragin, 1992). Together, we will learn to craft case studies that can effectively account for networked technologies and other contexts that diffuse phenomena across boundaries and borders (e.g., computational models, algorithms, social media networks, mobile devices, etc.). The course will involve several hands-on activities and culminate in an in-depth case study investigation.
