About G3C

G3C Experiential Learning Model

G3C (Global Genetics and Genomics Community) is a bilingual collection of unfolding case studies for use with students and practicing healthcare providers learning basic genetic/genomic concepts. When faced with a patient and their needs, there may be multiple ways to meet those needs. Yet, too often education requires learners to follow a linear path to form a solution - negating the multi-dimensional nature of human beings. An Unfolding Case Study (UCS) can address this deficiency by offering the student a self-guided learning experience which allows for nuanced experiential learning. For the instructor, a UCS offers a way to robustly cover a topic, bringing to light the subtleties in a more realistic practice-based skill environment.
