Learning activities - Introduction

Introduction - notes for teacher

hatWhat kind of learning activities can you ask your students to do using the cases? For example, the owner of the Norwegian Hatchery - Troms Stamfiskstasjon would like to increase production by 30%. You are engaged as a consultant to deliver a development plan with recommendations about technology needs and possible environmental concerns.  In each learning activity, you might have to provide students with other information that is not specified in the case - you make up production totals or disease problems for example. We would like you to specify the added information students must have to carry out the learning activity. Since each of the teacher has a different expertise, we hope to get a variety of learning activities covering several disciplines - technology, nutrition, health and more.
