Practitioners in the field of educational technology require a high level of problem solving, critical thinking, and interpersonal skills to deal with learning issues that are often complex and multidimensional Unfortunately, there are few opportunities for providers of learning services and learners to practice authentic instructional design or educational technology as part of their academic preparation and/​or training.

When learners interact with case studies through reasoning and problem solving, learning takes place through the process of analysis, synthesis, application, and evaluation In particular, case studies that use story telling to reflect problem situations in real-life create an authentic learning environment for learners This book provides the material that learners can use to interact, reason and apply their problem solving skills in realistic and engaging cases Because of the interdisciplinary and multidis-ciplinary nature of the field and the cases, this book is useful not just in educational technology, but also in other fields An online "Facilitator Guide" is provided for each chapter for teachers and trainers using this book with their learners.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
