Our brand-new online interactive case in family engagement lets learners engage and reflect on a difficult situation related to family engagement, independently or with a group, with or without the explicit input of a case facilitator or course instructor. Our interactive cases are designed so that you can take a close-up view of the people in the situation, reflect on their perspectives, and then take a step back and think about the larger organizational issues influencing each person’s behavior.  Using the interactive case will allow you to grapple with real-world dilemmas and come up with real-world solutions, consider family strengths, and think about how to develop trusting relationships with families - all of which are competencies needed to engage families effectively.  

The Bridging Worlds Interactive Case focuses on the transition to school which is an important milestone in the lives of children and families. In this interactive case, you will explore the complex issues surrounding the transition to kindergarten and the importance of family engagement in the process. Let's get started!
