Dr. Clyde Freeman Herreid has published over 100 articles in the areas of physiology, ecology, and instruction and developed case methods directed towards law and medical students and works on a regular column on case study teaching in the Journal of College Science Teaching. Over a decade ago, he was asked to write case studies for undergraduate science education. The response to his regular article was overwhelemingly accepted, he soon was asked to write an extra annual issue devoted to case study.

GrantsNumerous NSF research grants on physiology and ecology plus an NSF grant on Case Study Teaching in Science, 1998–2000, an NSF Dissemination Grant for Case Study Teaching, 2004–2007 and an NSF grant for Using Interactive Methods in the Teaching of Large Classes 2006–2008

Herreid’s case studies were powerful because he presented the information in a unique way compared to the traditional lecture teaching. Other teachers were able to take this useful information and present it to their students in an exciting and engaging way. Teachers and students both had to think about the information in a much different way. Everyone using the new ideas for case studies were allowed to explore creativity and an opportunity for cross disciplinary approaches. These new approaches help instructors convey the material by engaging the students in a science inquired approach. Herreid’s external use of using cases for examples allow him to capture the attention of students and instructors and thoroughly sustain their attention.
