The Utility of Experiential Case Studies in Police Education: A Comparative Analysis
Case studies have long been utilized in a variety of disciplines for educational and training purposes enhanc ing the student learning process. The experiential case study model presents a problem solving approach to a criminal justice oriented situation with no precise, clear-cut solutions. The utility of this model allows the student to apply theoretical concepts and principles to practical situations. An evaluation of the model was made in a quasi-experimental research design with two groups of criminal justice students. The results supported the experi ential approach over a traditional teaching method.
