The Michigan Sustainability Cases (MSC) initiative produces case studies for sustainability education.Housed in the School for Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan, MSC builds on the tradition of case-based learning, long used in fields such as business, medicine, and law. By coupling a compelling narrative about a complex sustainability problem with informative multimedia elements and an engaged learning exercise, MSC is reinvigorating the case method, making it more exciting and inclusive. Individual case studies are produced by teams of students, faculty, and practitioners and are published on an open-access learning platform at learngala.com. MSC has been producing and piloting case studies since 2016, covering awide range of sustainability dilemmas.
