Stories, Cases, and Practical Wisdom.
Gillespie, Michael L.
Innovative Higher Education, v21 n1 p49-66 Fall 1996
Four lines of thought in philosophy that support the use of case studies and narratives to promote reflective teaching at the college level are examined. The four concepts include reflective practice or reflection in action; practical wisdom (contrasted with abstract wisdom); use of concrete cases for rational, practical decision making; and a form of knowing that derives from narration.
