New Perspectives of Case Study Technology in the Context of Studying Semi-Structured Real and Educational Problems


Background/Objectives: The study presents theoretical and methodological foundations of case study technology, the innovative technique of interactive education, and the relevant modern approaches in the context of post non-classical learning methods. Methods: Methodological tools of the study include the interrelated systemic-synergetic, mediumbased, problem-based, cultural and historical approaches that are applied to the logic of the ideas of sustainable development and the relevant principal methods as follows: information search, systemic-structural analysis, functional integration, retrospective reflection, expert diagnostics, scientific forecasting. Findings: The obtained scientific results are of theoretical and practical value and they represent the basis for further investigations in the area of the conceptual development of theoretical and methodological foundations and of the methodology of constructing and implementing the cases. For the first time in scientific theory the categorical essence and educational mission of the case study technique have been defined in the course of investigating the semi-structured real and educational problems. The conceptual foundations have been defined and justified including the advanced ideas and principles of design and implementation of the case study technology in the process of studying the semi-structured real and educational problems. The pedagogical model has been developed for studying these problems at three levels: theoretical and methodological, psychological and pedagogical, private and didactical. Applications/Improvements: The results of the study can be used by the specialists in the sphere of education for teaching problematic materials in the process of education of bachelor and master students.
