Pablo García Borboroglu, a National Geographic Explorer, developed this Explorer Case Study exemplar using the Explorer Case Study organizer, a tool created by National Geographic for Explorers. He created the case study “Penguins: A Conservation Legacy” using the Open Education Resource (OER) Explorer Case Study to organize relevant information about his work into a story. Borboroglu will use this case study to prepare presentations, write grant proposals, and communicate about his work with a variety of audiences.

Teaching with case studies is a research based learning strategy that helps students to become problem solvers using real-world stories.

National Geographic invites you to use the Explorer Case Study organizer to develop the case study of your work and to use case studies in your teaching practice.
