The Case for the Case Study in the Twenty-First Century: A Rupture in the Order of Discourse

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This commentary discusses the consequences the shift from a paper-based world to a screen-centric world has for writers, teachers, and therapists. Whereas the case study was once composed for and stored on paper and its circulation thus restricted, now digital composing transforms the potential for the case study to circulate widely and freely via the World Wide Web. Moving the case study from paper to screen is not a question of reformatting; rather, it requires becoming literate in a new medium, one that offers the potential for ongoing collaborative revision and the development of participatory forms of knowledge production.
